Lovely Lil' MCM Lamps.

One of my many Mid Century Modern loves = lamps.  Go ahead, search "lamp" on my blog and see what pops up.

So, remember the  post about "The Mother Ship"?  Well, I was looking for a small night stand lamp for my bedroom and got impatient... who me, impatient?  So I went off to Ebay and bought "The Mother Ship".   Don't get me wrong, I love TMS but wouldn't you know I found exactly what I wanted about 8 weeks later at 2 thrift stores.  

I have long admired small mcm lamps with long teak wood necks and tulip style bases.   Of course I have never come across one in my years of hunting so I thought "What are the chances"?  Hence the TMS purchase.  

Well, here they are, my two little lovelies.  Don't worry, TMS is safe and sound in my living room.

Came complete with the original lamp shade, which is in perfect condition. The body could use a re-paint.  I'll get around to that eventually.

Like new, just needs a lamp shade.  Poor pictures I know.  The bedroom is dark with the addition of my new window panel.

and....The Mother Ship

I just bought the sibling (or at least the first cousin) of the lamp in the top picture. Same lamp, except mine is striped! I just posted about it the other day too. :)

TMS is to drool for! What a great find.
