I found this:
It was in the darkest corner of a long workbench in the garage, back behind piles of old extension cords, jars of nuts & bolts and empty broken boxes. At first I thought it was a planter but, regardless of what it was, I knew I had to have it as soon as I dug it out! It was really dirty. the wiring was loose and covered in cobwebs & dust, and it didn't work when I plugged it in.
Do you know what it is? Would you have bought it?
Mr. KV thought I was nuts to bring it home (hint: he wouldn't have bought it). It's a 1958 Lane & Company Hawaiian Leaf TV Lamp. I did a little research to see what I could find out and found this website, devoted entirely to TV lamps. Apparently, I got a great deal! If you go to the tvlamps page, scroll down about 15 pictures and you'll see my beauty. Here's the rating they give it:
|It cleaned up beautifully and is in MINT condition!|
|The wiring just needed a little TLC and a new bulb|
|Beautiful, isn't it?|
What do you think?
