Sometimes I really regret not taking more 'before' photo's. Because that would really help to show you all what a lot of work it takes, to fill my shop with the treasures you see scattered around my shop.
Like this lamp, which I found when thrifting through the estate of an elderly man in Friesland. It is an original sixties lamp. It looked and was old and sallow but I liked it and it could come with me to The Hague (which is 150 single trip and that is a lot in the Netherlands).
And once in The Hague it was polished and polished and polished and polished till it was it's shiny self again. It was rewired and a bespoke shade was fitted. And now it is ready to move on.
But this whole process took about 3 months, no of course not full time, I think all in all it took 10 hours. But that is why some of the treasures in my shop, indeed will set you back a bit off money. But if you see the work it takes to get it like it is now, the price is not even that bad, considering.
You buy a lamp, but at the same time you pay me my time, gasoline, polish, rewiring and lampshade making. Sounds kind of logical, don't you think?
You can buy it with or without the lampshade. Or you can just buy the lampshade. Whatever you like. The foot of the lamp has some tiny rust spots, I will try to polish it again, and if I succeed I wil take new photo's of the base. If not, than that is just the way it is and we have to deal with it. Tant pis, as they say in French.
