epson233
(64 items)

Saw some lamp posting this morning -- particularly jay's slag Egyptian motif lamp -- so thought i would share my little wood nymph girl -- she is not antique as the wiring is way too modern -- but she reminded me of some of auguste moreau work so she had to come home with me from the thirft store for $9 -- shade not included -- that was a $160 OUCH -- ebay sting with one of those devilish knats that run up the bidding and then typically cancel out if they win -- wish the fly swatter could reach threw this screen of mine -- ted and i always turn her on at night if we leave to go get coffee -- when we come back in she offers a welcoming glow to the home

the 4th pic -- where the nymph sits is a 1950s dixie that had been in a fire with smoke and some scortching damage -- dixie is a carolina furniture manufacturing company -- originally this had a mirror on the back and was made for the bedroom -- we gutted it, sanded and stained it for use as a "sideboard" in the family room -- the top and sides are solid mahogany -- the veneer is beautifully done on the drawers. For $7 and a little work we got an nice quality piece of furniture.

    thanks jay -- you had asked in an email if i knew who made them -- ebay had a BIN listed of a similar shade in red -- the description said krasnos -- but i wonder if perhaps that was not a typo -- research speaks of an austrian manf with the spelling as krosnos -- still checking it out
  7. czechman czechman, 2 years ago
    The shade is Krasno, czechoslovakia and beautiful color!!

    thanks jayhow and czechman -- i just have to laugh -- that shade cost $160 and the seller must have a pot load more as he keeps listing and the price keeps going down -- could have bought two for what i paid the the one -- oh well live and learn
  9. czechman czechman, 2 years ago
    epson233, i dont think you overpaid.. you oibviously wanted it and as they say in the antique world, it's worth is whatever your willing to spend on it!.. if i see something i want bad enough, to me, if i can afford it, i dont care what it cost.. i would love to find a shade like yours the color is great!

    I remember buying some of those shades in the plumbing store here, they make a lot of clear repros, the colored ones I like but have never seen any, wish I could buy those red shades, very nice !~

    hi czechman and phil -- well guys check out ebay -- the seller must have a boat load as he keeps listing them as fast as they sell -- i have one in the pink also -- when she gets moved around the house -- sometimes she get to wear her pink bonnet -- thanks for you love

    ok inky -- when i pass this world i will leave a note on the bottom for britter bear (my daughter) to make sure you get her -- that is providing we are both still around -- i celebrated my 65th birthday today -- received a special bottle of wine called "the lady in red" from the prosser washington winery from ted -- as you can tell by my postings i love the color red and ted always call me the lady in red as with many of my past co workers

    another birthday gift that came my way today via cw -- was Bazelmania had done a post on two pink frosted ladies that looked to be from walther sohne molds -- which i am totally ditzy about -- he just wanted to get rid of them as his taste had changed -- i had one of them in the uranium glass -- long story short --gave him my email so we had a nice visit and come to find out he also had the pelican -- all for the cost of postage -- so as always with a christmas baby -- santa came early

    thanks for taking the time to comment on the posting -- love the opinions of others

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY Lady in red!!...:-)

    hey kid jerrod -- great to have you back on board this morning -- did you enjoy our morning's coffee together -- i sure did -- just getting ready to do the klinderloop to see what treasurers the bins hold for us this day -- see you at coffee again tomorrow -- in regards to birthdays -- just another day -- the day one is currently living is the real gift that you get to be like the movie "groundhogs day" and do it all over again -- with some improvements made of course -- over and out

    The girl on the swing was heavily reproduced starting in the earlier 1980's. In the later 90's other versions were produced which this is a version of. They were made as stand alone statues and also these lamp varieties.
