glam lady lamp


i have had this lamp in the shop at sk3tchbook! for a while.  i think she is amazing.  she used to be in our bedroom, but was just a bit too feminine for john.  i wanted to put her in my studio, but counter space is very very precious in there, so i opted for overhead lighting.  today i added her to my etsy shop.  i am hoping someone in the world will see her an recognize her glamness!!  she is ceramic, maybe porcelain.  she has gloved hands and pink (yes, pink!) hair in an up do.  i made her skirt with embroidered linen fabric.  underneath is the original crinoline she came with.  her original skirt is long gone.  over her head is a squarish cloth shade with a crystal finial.  she works great.  one bulb in the shade, and one in her skirt.  i usually don't light her skirt...just cautious.  the wiring is original but seems sound.  for extra protection, some people may consider re-wiring.
