Hi Richard,
Congratulations on a good find and a nice restoration job :)

As you know, suitable shades for vintage lamps can be a problem. Reasonably-priced ones can be found at many of the big-box retailers, but the selection is limited. In my area we have a couple of lamp shade shops with a huge variety of choices, but they tend to be very pricey; sometimes more than one wants to invest in the lamp. In your case you were lucky in finding that shade at a second-hand shop.

Beautiful lamp!

I picked up this lamp at a flea market in March and plan on working on it this month. I am still trying to decide on a new paint scheme for it after I run it through the sandblaster.

Hello Kevin
Thanks I found this while cleaning out a basement of a boarded up house it was packed for full of stuff just like a time capsule .
The new owners did not want anything there was a murder that has been unsolved for over 29 years now at that time it was like 16 years
Sincerely rich
I even found the bank pay stubs when the House was first bought in 1933 for $3500
