Can anyone tell me anything about this old lamp

abeplingNovember 6, 2011

I found two of these old lamps when i moved into our house. No one has lived here for 15 years and was built in the 70's. There are no markings on them anywhere.

here are the links to the pictures.

Oh my gosh!
I remember that style. I don't know if its "in" again yet. Everything seems to come back eventually.
Check ebay for "60's lamp" "70's lamp" to see if you find similar and what they are selling for.

If they are not of any great value as they are, I would paint them turquoise, put an ivory wash over just leaving some turquoise peeking through, and painting the candle part so it doesn't look dirty. And a nice fresh ivory shade.

Or whatever! Let us know what you do.
