Something Old, Something New

Grandmother's lamp... all dressed up in a new shade! Note the original amber finial w/exquisite brass detailing, rosewood base, hand painted... Now holding court in my living room!

The color of the shade has more of a greenish, yellowy tint in the brown..macadamia shell color.. looks a little off here, but is truly beautiful with the base ... picks up the green in the painted flowers and the yellow tint in the base. Working on my photography!!!
