Cherub Lamp with Prisms...New Again...

Do you remember a while back I bought this vintage lamp at a sale and I'd taken it all apart? It was not a nice colour rather a goldy and stressed silver colour.

I'm finished with it now. I spray painted it very lightly in a white colour. Marc replaced the socket for me. Then I bought crystal priscms.

Its just too bright sitting in front of the mirror to take a good picture with the light on even with the flash off. It is made in Italy and the base is 2 marble squares. The cherub sits on a clear round crystal piece.

I had bought it with the intension of putting it into my pinkdaisies etsy store but I'm loving it too much. I have a "thing" for lamps and for the time it has found a new home here with me.
I hope you have a bright and happy day today...Judi xoxo
