About them lamps…

I’ve recently received some rather venemous feedback on the Steampunk lamps. It seems that there has been an assumption about the source of the lamp parts.

To set the record straight, I too appreciate the craftsmanship and historical significance of antique goods. I would sooner eat a fine Bradley and Hubbard center-draft lamp than destroy it for art. However, in the case of beat-up junk, the left-overs that have already been scavanged for useable parts, the dented, leaking bases that have already been “electrified” I consider it a service to the world to keep these items out of the waste stream and give them new life as functional art. In a way they even perform some of the same function as originally intended.

Thank you for your feedback.

That is all I intend to say on the subject.
