I was bored today.Needed to make a lamp ! So I dismantled a lamp I was not really happy with added a few more parts and an Alacite ? shade and here she is.

    nice lamp! i have a lamp very similar to this one, with the same kind of stone/glass. mine is a large floor lamp though with a stained glass shade. just love it thanks for sharing!

    LOVE the lamp. The shade doesn't quite work for me. Looks like an add-on. FWIW.
  3. Hedgewalker Hedgewalker, 3 years ago
    Yeah...This was made from pieces of at least 5 different lamps.I wasn't sure about the shade either.I chose this one because it glows also.I may have to rethink it...
  4. fenton-hobnail fenton-hobnail, 3 years ago
    the shade is alright for now...or at least until you can find a different shade.

    I have quite a few slag lamps and I always have a hard time getting a shade that works with them.
  6. Savoychina1 Savoychina1, 3 years ago
    You did an outstanding job with the lamp. It's size and proportion balance nicely. My observation on the shade is subjective and not mean spirited in any way. I wonder what a small white sphere would look like ? !
  7. fenton-hobnail fenton-hobnail, 3 years ago
    ohh savoychina that sounds like a great idea! i think a shade like that would look great!
  8. Hedgewalker Hedgewalker, 3 years ago
    I didn't take it as mean spirited.I took it as honesty.And that is a great suggestion.I think that may work.The search will begin tomorrow.Thanks

    I changed the shade to a yellow opaline one that I think works better.But the search for the white globe will begin today.I think the globe will be a good fit.Kinda lookin like a street lamp.Thanks again for the suggestion !

    I really like that color . Looking forward to more !

    My aunt has a floor lamp that had belonged to my grandmother with this exact same top section, jade green glass ornamentation and a twisting metal structure arising from a heavy brass or metal base. Can you tell me what company manufactured these lamps. My aunt offered to leave me my grandmothers lamp, but just in case I am interested in finding and perhaps aquiring one for myself. I looked over about every inch of my aunt's lamp and could find no company markings of any kind to identify the manufacturer.

    i love it.... but i love it with the ruffled shade
  22. Hedgewalker Hedgewalker, 3 years ago
    Thanks hobnail !! There was some differance of opinion on the shades.I want to get a plain white globe and try that.I think it would give it a street light look .
