I was lucky to find this circa 1930s' electric samovar (tea kettle) from Europe in a local thrift shop. It couldnt be used with North American wattage, but i really liked the industrial "art deco" look. So after gutting it and retro fiting it with the proper materials, i think it became a pretty cool lamp! Love those lucky finds at the thrift store!
