One of two lamps made from old lamp parts, jack stands and milk strainers.
The patina on the strainers varies greatly.
The strainers cast great shadows on the ceiling.
The pair of lamps look good on the painted Danish modern dresser.

These lamps are made with conduit parts from my electric junk box, sockets and harps from old lamps, vintage milk strainers and the bases from old jack stands.  It only took a screwdriver, pliers and wire stripper to put them together.

I also think this lamp would be great with a paper shade showing retro camping scenes. Posted: 5:17 pm on March 25th
