a lamp like this?
Isn't it beautiful? I love the way the light sparkles and reflects off the wall. I only have a 40 watt chandelier bulb in it. I got this at an Estate Sale this morning. I didn't even see the add in yesterday's paper, I just happened to glance at our local paper again this morning and saw the ad when Charley got in from work. So we drove to Ripley real quick to take a look. I'm so glad we did.
It is not glass, it is made of plastic. I'm wondering if it was hand made or not. What do you think? Unfortunately, the top 'shade' has a couple of cracks in it, but you can't really tell unless you look at it up close. It looks like to me that it was made of those plastic bowls from maybe the 40s or 50s. The shade looks like a large bowl with a hole cut in the bottom of it. But I don't know what the bottom could have been made from unless maybe a candle holder. I've never seen plastic candle holders before, though. On the bottom of the large bowl it says, A & A Plastic Corp. NY.
Here is a close up of the bottom of it.
And here is a picture of it without the shade.
I looked around on the internet and couldn't find any like it, but I really didn't know how to google it. I didn't know what to call it.
So, help me out if you can, have any of you seen a lamp like this before?
I just love it, cracks and all. I only paid $2 for it and I think it is just lovely when it is turned on.
