    Agree with useing LEDs. Only continued use forr incandesants is lava lamps when re heat is required. LEds especially in recess light fixtureswhere lower heat is safer near insuration snd other combusables. Sorry for hijack.

    I put dim-able leds in an over head light . The tuner on fm had a terrible sound on the lower bands. Shut off the over head light and sound disappeared . The over head light and outlet to receiver were on same circuit .Put open element/clear bulbs in the over head. Sound gone. Added benefit is this cool pattern the light has now. 20171209_201227_resized.jpg

    I found this lamp in a box my GF had lying around. I only just now found out it's actually worth a few bucks! I don't have a pic, but here's an image.

    The shade of this bankers-style lamp is actually made of sea shells.
    It was crafted by an artisan from Brooklyn many years ago.
    He searched out the right sorts of shells for effect.
    The dragonfly is stained glass of course.

    Found this in Berlin, though it is attributed to an English company.

    This is an American lamp from Faries Mfg Co. Found at a shop sitting outside in the rain. Cleaned waxed and re-wired, no shade with it.

    Not included at $2.00, no wonder it was missing.

    Shouldn't be too hard to find something similar.
