Rustic Table Lamp

8 Aug

This one of a kind table lamp is made from an old primitive barn find rabbit trap. Frame is made of wood, crudely fashioned, but well built, with various styles of chicken wire. Lamp has a nice rustic look and is very cool. The trap stands on it’s end, bottom “door” slides out to gain access to the inside to change bulbs. The lamp was wired up with two bakelite style sockets, wired with vintage style cloth covered twisted wire, and comes with two vintage “Edison” style coil filament light bulbs. Cord is approximately 8′ long and plugs into a standard wall outlet, with vintage style plug. I knew when I found this thing, it was a great candidate to be cleaned up and repurposed.

Very cool piece and makes a great addition to your farmhouse, cottage, living room or office.

Dimensions: 14″ high x 7″ x 7″

Vintage Berry Crate and Baskets

You don’t see too many of these anymore. Vintage wooden strawberry baskets and crate. Wooden crate has a hinged top, open up to reveal two layers of small balsa-style wooden baskets, once used to transport strawberries to market.

Crate has a nice medium colored stained finish, two levels of wire/wooden baskets, all intact, 16 total, with wooden separators. Crate has a couple cracks in the slates, but overall very solid and usable. Makes a great display and conversation piece. This is a true barn find straight from Pennsylvania.

One of a kind hanging pendant light fixture featuring three vintage reproduction industrial cage lights. Three cage lights styled after trouble lights used in the 20s-40s, are made of brass wire, and are hinged to open or close as desired, depending on what look you prefer, and for bulb removal. They fit around new black sockets and are wired with vintage style black cloth covered twisted wire. They use two different styles of reproduction Edison bulbs, one with “squirrel cage” filaments and two round bulbs with spiral filaments. All three lights are suspended from a vintage leaf spring removed from my 1954 GMC pickup and was left with its original patina.

Included with the light are three bulbs and canopy for mounting to and existing box in the ceiling.

Size: Approx 30″ long. Wire from leaf spring to ceiling can be cut to desired length, but comes with approx. 24″ of wire.
