This Vintage lamp has a gorgeous blue drip glaze that went perfectly with the customers other table lamp. The height of this lamp was to tall for their bedside table so they reworked it. By removing the top half of the neck and the base they were able to make it flow with their other Vintage lamp. They plan to use the other pieces for their next project! This project shows upcycling vintage for personalization of the old into a new modern yet retro piece.

SOLD $99.99 ~02/8/2013~

Very tall Mid Century drip glaze lamp with wood neck. A fabulous example of Mid Century artwork meets function. Gorgeous blues and greens adorn this very tall lamp. Standing at 3 feet tall without shade, it is a statement maker. Perfect for your mid century, retro, vintage living room or office. Bring Mad Men to you. Recently rewired it works perfectly. There is some wear on the wood base and neck and one crack, nothing terrible, shown in pictures. No felt on the bottom due to rewiring. I really hate to let this one go but I am running out of room. My loss is your fabulous gain!

Dimensions: 3’x6″ tall,not including harp and 9″ at its widest.
This listing does not include the shade pictured.

Antique Patchwork Quilt~60+ years old.

image

Antique Patchwork Quilt in a Flower pattern with squares. The flowers sort of look like daisies. VERY old. I think it may be from the 40s or 50s. In wonderful condition for its age. It does have some stains, a few on the front and some on the back by the hem. I have not washed it because I have not taken care of an older quilt like this. I will leave that for the buyer to decide. There are some broken stitches on the flowers. Can be fixed with some hand stitches. One flower with such damage is shown in pics. Super pretty piece. Would make a wonderful bedspread or could be used as a wall handing because the pattern is so pretty.

Dimensions: 63″ wide, 77″ long.
