When Nicole moved into the house she now lives in, it was because the previous owner had passed away in his home after a long illness. His family removed most of his belongings and they said she could do whatever she wanted with the rest. It was some late 70's/80's knick knacks, some coffee cups and some furniture. She had two of these lamps, still with the original large papery shades. She put just about everything up for sale. With Orion being such a spaz in the house, I figured I better get a back-up lamp, because she already knocked one over.

|I had to take the harp off for the new lampshade.|
