I'm a little late to ATG's Thrift Share Monday party this week, but you know what they say
"Better Late than Never" right?
I picked up this amazing pottery lamp with a pretty wacky shade this week at a thrift shop. It was marked a little pricy, but when the volunteer plugged it in to test it and got a pretty good shock, they gave me a pretty big price chop. I felt bad for the volunteer, but yay for the discount!
OK, so maybe it doesn't look so amazing with the crazy beaded 1/2 shade that's obviously missing some sort of dome to cover the bulb, and it has to be rewired...but the actual pottery part is amazing & I have to wonder if the beadwork is original. The string it's on looks pretty dated, but could it actually be from the 1920s or 1930s?
Also, if there are any of you pottery buffs out there who know about Unaka Pottery I'd love a little lesson. So far I've found a few bits and pieces of info online. Supposedly Unaka was also known as Clouse and a listing on ebay shows this paper note that was stuffed in a vase that outlines a little more about Unaka.
