When I shared the photos of the things that I got at my elderly friend's estate sale this past Saturday, Mick quickly picked up on the gold floor lamp with the three adjustable lamps. His comment was "SCORE SCORE SCORE on the little table, the clock, and the floor lamp! That clock will look Amazing hung up in the Shack! id put all 3 things in the den haha."
To which my reply was "Mick, the floor lamp...well, I'm not sure about it. I already have an amazing floor lamp with adjustable lights that I'm going to use in the den. I don't think I've ever blogged about it. I'll share it sometime."
I think the time has come. So, above you see a photo of the amazing floor lamp that I already have with the three adjustable lamps. Each lamp is on it's own post, each post a different length. It's beautiful black with brass accents. I bought it when I was in high school, over 10 years ago, at a local flea market. I think I gave somewhere in the $10 - $15 range for it (it's been a few years). I love that I can adjust the light to just where I want it.
I also know that it is the correct age for my house. The following scan is from my copy of the Spring and Summer 1960 Montgomery Ward catalog that I have.
You may want to click on the catalog page to enlarge it. You can see my beautiful lamp on the far left, originally selling in 1960 for $15.95. Available in black or coffee (brown). The pole lamp on the far right reminds me of the one that Atomic Living blogged about a few days ago.
So, just for your review, here is a photo of the one that I bought Saturday:
I agree that it's attractive, but I don't think it is quite the show stopper that the black one is. But, that's just my opinion. One thing that I do really like about the all brass one is that the shades have a design punched into the metal at the end.
Once again, here is my black lamp:
So, now I ask you, my readers: which adjustable floor lamp do you prefer?
Have a great Wednesday!
