I have such a love/hate relationship with Ebay. I purchased this as on a whim because it really caught my eye. It was listed as an "original 1930s art-deco lamp" by an antique dealer with over 2500 positive feedbacks and a 12 year selling history. When I received it, there was a large sticker underneath describing it as a sarsaparilla reproduction, copyright 1985. The seller was happy to refund my money, but quickly re-listed it without clarifying or identifying its source. These are available for purchase on the internet in multiple colors, brand new, for pretty cheap. Once again, I learned the value of doing a little research before buying. A quick google search would have saved a lot of time and effort.
