    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.

    Pretty cool. What shade do you think it originally had?

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

    Shouldn't be too hard to find something similar.

    Interesting!
    ....are the shades made of glass, paper, other?

    Know the age?

    I would estimate 1920's to late 1930's.

    p.s. Winnipeg, you should check out the WNMF, Philip Glass is playing this year among others.

    This is the more common Czech End Of Day style shade. The lamp my wife bought years ago.

    My friends picked this up for me from the ARC store. The Christmas story one is yellow and the whole leg lights up but they are around 400 dollars. I will take this one someone made for 90% less.
