With the weather getting cold and the last month being eaten up by holidays there haven’t been many auctions or sales here lately. I’ve been sitting in my office dreaming of auctions past. What a lovely summer it was! It looks like I’ll have another couple weeks free from estate auctions so I’m getting through my inventory backlog. At one of the best auctions I went to this fall I bought about 20 lamps. I love buying and selling lamps but it’s taken me a while to get all these cleaned up and ready to list.
This lamp was one of my favorites. It’s a pretty standard mid century lamp but shade is just too interesting. It has an outer wicker shade but inside it has this darling fiberglass shade with printed butterflies.
This lamp was also a favorite of mine. It might be the oldest one I’ve found so far. It’s made of a cast metal with these beautiful Art Nouveau flowers on it. When it sells to someone with the time to fix it up it should be totally stunning.
And of course I’ve never been able to pass up kitschy mid century lamps. This one with the rooster is about as kitschy as it gets!
