Hello Guys,
here is my latest restoration this cool lamp that got last summer.
The only name I seen was when was taking the lamp apart the socket which was made of copper / brass and porcelain
The Word Bryant was found,
now I need to find a cool vintage shade unless I just leave it as is .

Sincerely Richard

Lampshades are a problem for most thrift stores. Unless they receive a lamp
from a very clean estate they don't want it in the shop. However shades with good
metal might be cleaned or re clothed. In the past I have bought a lamp just to
get the shade.

The Bryant company made breaker panels and probably fixture components as well.

You will find a shade but how about a tin can with tiny bullet holes in it? :lol:

Nice! Does the gun shoot? :) I think it would look better with a shade. I did an image search for "clip on lamp shade with ducks" and got a few. Here's a nice vintage one (sold unfortunately), I like the leather binding and the image fits the lamp's theme well.

There's also new versions. Here's a couple I found and added to your lamp.

.

Ok, maybe the cute little yellow duckies might send the wrong signal :mrgreen: but the other one with a flying duck looks alright. There's others that look pretty nice. It's a fairly small lamp and I didn't check the shade sizes to see if any would work.

So they'll have to pry that lamp out of your cold dead hands ?
