Colonial maple again
We've talked about Colonial maple before, the good, the ugly, and the improbable. In my enthusiastic study and pursuit of pieces, brought on I am sure by the fact that my immigrant parents never had anything like it (they went modern), I have only once come across a Colonial ceiling light fixture, so naturally I had to have it, and it is now installed, and amuses us considerably.
I think I will change the glass, as there is a glare problem, and I CANNOT find the beauty in these shades. But I do enjoy the fixture itself, although no one on the lighting forum appreciated it! Maybe someone here will, if only as an example of "the strange things that people will collect."
