This is something we started a couple of years ago that is a lot of fun. We acquire older lamps from mission stores, or state sales, sometimes rescuing them from the scrap heap. We then recycle the old wiring and damaged metal pieces. The remaining parts are stripped of much of the old finish, and then sent out for a baked-on espresso or black powder coat.
We then assemble the lamp with the old parts, add new parts if needed, and maybe parts from other lamps. We install new wiring, safety, and bulb test, and, voila, you basically have a new lamp. Please note that most all of these lamps are 1 of a kind, sometimes a pair, and sold on a first-come, first-served basis.
