Lamp from 1930's




Above is a re-creation of my list for shopping.. if it were a photo of the list you could not read it.
Can you guess what it means where I wrote Not Thera? 

Answer to Not Thera.... I accidentally bought Thera Tears drops for dry eyes a couple of months ago.
 I wanted to add the correct one on the list but could not think of the name, so I wrote Not Thera...

It worked, I came home with Tears au naturel

OH SAY CAN YOU SEE, WHERE MY MEMORY MIGHT BE?



This is my 1904 oil lamp. Can anyone tell me what the shade is called? I am trying to find one online and so far have not... it just sits on the chimney. I have tried shade and can't find one.

UPDATE: my first comment this morning was CatTales and she was right. Thank you Mildred. I found a TON OF SHADES by searching for filigree chimmey shade... HERE 


 1930's electric lamp that is a match to the 1904 lamp, electrified in the 1930's. 
Both of these  lamps sit on our bedside tables.

I think that is called a filigree shade. They are awesome lamps.

Too cute about the grocery list. I HATED Handi-Wrap and made a mental note not to buy that one because it is NOT handy!

I had that second lamp myself.

Not sure the name of the first lamp it is pretty shade.

Filigree - now why couldn't I think of that. It's beautiful! I even have an antique ring that has filigree around the setting.

Hello Sandra, I have done a similar shopping list. Whatever works to jog the memory, right? I like your filigree chimney shade, the light must looks pretty shining thru the shade.
Have a happy day! BTW, I am sorry the hawk is scaring your yardbirds away!

Love that lamp. My first thought was filigree as well.

Love those lamps. Great idea the way you worked out the eye drop situation. If I did that I would get to the store, read my list and wonder what in the world that meant. lol My memory goes south some days but it comes back now and then when I slow down. Thank you sweet Sandra for taking time to drop by and comment on my blog. You are so sweet and your comments are always appreciated. Love and hugs my sweet friend.

Filigree lamps. Beautiful, every one. Believe me, Sandra, I cannot remember current things from now until just now!

That filigree shade is very pretty.

As long as you understand your list that's all that matters!
Love the lamp you have and the shade is gorgeous.

Terra said...

Funny about not Thera. Your lamps are beauties.

Linda said...

Love your lamps!! Only YOU can understand your list - but it is only for YOU!!
I would be disappointed if you had an ordinary one like most people!

Andrew Fulton said...

So lovely to see...

Scott said...

Oh the tricks we pull to trigger our memories at times like these. Nice job.

Chatty Crone said...

Sandra I do the same thing - you gotta remember things any way you can these days!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Yep, I jot things down and I know what I mean, but anyone else that would pick up my list would probably wonder what in the world do I mean. lol! I love the pretty filigree lamp shade.

The filigree shade is lovely! I've never seen a lamp with a shade like that.

EG CameraGirl said...

I've never seen a filigree shade! Very cool!

DawnTreader said...

As long as you know what you mean... (the list) ;)

Ann Thompson said...

I like the way you did that list. Sounds like something I would do. Both of those lamps are really nice. Glad you found out what the shade was called

love the filagree lamp

Hi Sandy, Of course, I am in love with your gorgeous old lamps. I especially love the filigree shade. So pretty. The other one would match my style better but there is something about the filigree that I really like. Have you had them for a long time? Were they your mother's? Just wondering. You know I like the old stuff!
