One day a while back we decided to take a gander through
It of course did not have a price on it and it weighed a ton. So
very very casually
(trying to supress my inner squeal of delight)
with a poker face I sauntered up to the cash and
asked how much they wanted for it.
It hangs in our still to be reno'd living/dining room that definitely
does not show it off to it's potential.
Apparently some guy just dropped it off and
thought it was junk, JUNK! Can you believe it?
$75.00 he said. Sold I said!
As you can see it has this gorgeous patina on it.
It needed a ceiling canopy and rewiring so off I hauled it
to an older gentleman who has been
for years in nearby Aurora
and he custom matched the canopy
and you know what he told me?
It is not brass, it is solid cast bronze!
I would like to find some crystals for it but I
do love it without them too.
I love the ball shape and the organic style of this vintage
light, another Restore score for $15.00
I picture this one sprayed a fun colour.
This little lovely was a Good Will deal of just $13.50.
