|There is an inner off white shade and a woven cane outer shade. Cool.|
So I spend the cash to get them into my possession. Forty eight fifty including shipping. Not a steal, but within my research and development budget. To give you some perspective; they're about twelve inches tall and eight inches in diameter. Pretty small shades. But I just wanted to see how they were made and then maybe I'd resell them. They looked like this:
|Just a pair of shades hangin' out.|
|The wire piece with three arms is called a spider.|
|They just don't seem to make stuff like this anymore.|
|The idea is: the inner shade goes around the bulb . . .|
|and the outer shade diffuses the light.|
So I got the general idea of what's going on and I figure I'll put them back on ebay. When, what to my wandering eyes should appear, but two danish modern lamps, and eight tiny reindeer. Well, okay, there weren't really any reindeer, but I did make it rhyme, didn't I?
I found these two shadeless danish modern style lamps on ebay. One thirty seven fifty for the pair delivered. A fair price.
|I am quite enamored of Danish Modern.|
|I'm also a lamp fancier.|
|Put the two together and you have wooden lamps all over my house.|
|And I just love these pull chains.|
So since I have these lampless shades, and these shadeless lamps, hmm, what should I do?
|I swear. I had every intention of reselling these shades . . .|
|until these lamps came along.|
What are your thoughts?
Both inner and outer shades should be inside the vertical arms? or
Diffuser shade on the outside is okay? or
Diffuser shade on the outside okay with a narrower lamp?
We'll be back later with . . . more stuff.
