On Tap Today: Unique Lamp

4 15 010

This one of a kind piece was assembled here in Portland from an old sewing machine flywheel and a keg tap. The wiring runs through the tap from the base and the light-bulb is at the tap spout.

It’s an interesting piece as the tap appears to be silver plated and has a pretty neat agate knob on the handle. Currently it has a flickering flame type bulb installed, but it could be upgraded to a brighter light if needed.

Overall it measures about 13 inches tall.

From The Kitchen Of Frankenstein’s Mother?

Ceramic ‘toy elephant’ cookie jar with faux crude stitching.

Like Whistler, little Victor grew up to be an artist too, but of a different sort. I’d presume that something just like this left an indelible mark on his psyche.

12 inches tall.

Art Deco Stone Bookends

4 15 007

Cool Art Deco styled bookends in marble or agate. They’re in good condition and measure about 3 1/2 by 4 1/4 by 6 inches tall.

While stone they probably aren’t heavy or large enough to hold up a row of heavy reference books but they’d do  great with a series of vintage paperbacks or ready references at one’s desk.

Stress Less. Stressless Chair & Ottoman By Ekornes

4 17 010

The Stressless chair by Ekornes is a classic of comfortable design and this one is no different. Overall it is in decent shape but the bent wood supports  show signs of having been exposed to the weather as there is some peeling paint. I suspect it may have done time as a porch chair which with good weather upon us is a great idea . . . Or one could bring it back indoors where it really belongs.

Arts & Crafts Plant Stand Column

4 17 007

Approximately 36 inches tall and the top is about 13 inches square. It would make a nice accent piece with a big plant upon it or as a place to show off your favorite local potters work. In our pictures the best I could find was a lidded jar by Pacific Stoneware , Bennett Welsh’s famous Portland company.

The stand is in good condition and we’re asking $120. the Jar is good except for one chip on the lid so we’re letting it go for $30.

Juxtaposition: Sweet Old Cabinet & Mid-Century Lamps

4 15 016

This cool old pine cabinet that was probably the bottom of a two piece section. Consensus around the water cooler is that it pre-dates the American Civil War. It measures 20 1/2 inches deep, 57 1/2 inches wide and 31 tall. There are three drawers and a central cabinet and it’s in good condition for a piece pushing two centuries old. $335

We also have a pair of nice mid-century modern lamps. They are about 39 1/2 inches tall with the shades. $150

Personally I love the juxtaposition of the old and new.
