Calling All Lamp Lovers March 31, 2012
Greetings, sweet cherubs!,
We have a number of antique lamps here at the Treasured Home. Well, officially, they may not be antiques (100 years old) because electric light wasn’t all that common in 1912…was it?
Whether vintage or antique, a good lamp will usually outlive the shade that came with it. Often you’ll be able to find a replacement shade that looks great at your local Lamps Plus. Other times you have to go to more extreme measures.
This lamp is one of my treasures. It came from my parents home and I was told it was made by a company called Marbro. ( i just remember that the company’s name reminded me of the cigarette brand) They’re no longer in business and I doubt that I spelled the name correctly, but they made really gorgeous lamps, made to last forever. I just got the lamp shade back from a woman who re-makes lampshades here in town.
This old lamp was painted and updated by a local artist and I think it’s a lot of fun.
(Did I spell that like the English do or like the cereal? Hopefully it’s all the same! Acting like I’m multi-lingual can be a lot of work!)
