you gotta watch out for that 'attributed to' term,
it drives the price UP when you are 'buying' and drives the price DOWN,
when you are selling.

thanks for your input, I appreciate it.
as for your find a few posts back, I can't add much, but after a quick search I did find this, but it didnt offer any info on the artist.

unusual wind chime set made from acrylic balls (like the "grapes" you always see), brass rings & fishing lines. I found a small set at a junk store & thought they were so cool. I had never seen them before. then, months later I found this larger set @ salvation army all tangled up for $1. took it home, spent an hour untangling them & voila!
kinda reminds me of a dna strand.
anyone seen these before?

My first exciting estate sale find - a pair of Chunk Swag Lamps.



They're 12 inches high and they're connected. Not bad for $20.00.

When it gets dark I'll plug them in and take another picture.

The chain and cord are very sticky though, they were in a box of things but they have a I've been in a smokers house forever feel. Anyone have any ideas on an easy way to clean them? It might be easier to replace the cord and chain?

Great finds, especially at that price. Simple Green has never let me down, but swag kits are cheap as chips if you want them pristine.

I picked up this cute little pineapple table lamp with matching candle holders. I've seen these lamps before, but never with the candle holders? I'm thinking of using them in the cabana just for low lighting... Not on but candles lit.



With the light on I love it...

another tasty find Tiki David, you are definitely on a incredible midcentury roll. I think that is an Adrian Pearsall piece. either way, awesome piece.
