Engraved Silver Coffee Pot Lamp



I receive calls all the time from potential customers wanting
to know if I have the one particular item they are looking for.

I never turn down the opportunity to make a sale.
This person was looking for a silver coffee pot lamp.
Well, I had a ton of those about 10 years ago, but none now.

Didn't stop me though.
I had all the materials and as I was telling her this,
 she said....
"can you whip one out".

"Sure", I said.

After the first one, her friend wanted one as well.
I found this gorgeous piece at Canton....
hated to drill it, but it had lost the remainder of it's set
long ago.



I added a little glass bauble and
although I always use new electrical wiring,
I always try to use vintage lamp parts to give it that
really antique look.



I have no idea what type of shade she will put on it
when it moves to her home,
but for now, she wears a little antique lace.


And I think she wears it well :)

Thanks for stopping by today,
You know I love it when you come.

I am joining White Wednesday this week.
Vintage Inspiration Friday,
and
Feather Your Nest Friday.....
