We must admit we have a thing for lamps. Since we bought our first Capodimonte at a yard sale, we have been hooked. I have even learned how to rewire them without killing myself.
Friday night we were lucky enough to purchase a very dirty, but somehow beautiful lamp. After cleaning it and taking it apart we discovered it is a rare Rick-bar sales lamps. These lamps are gorgeous, ornate, and are very collectible. This one is still in my living room in pieces until I can get it rewired and back together. Below are some pictures of it. The globe is free of nicks and chips. We have to buy a shade for the top and will have to search for the right one.
