Customer Question
I have a very old...
I have a very old lamp that is quite unique. It has a lamp shade that is a pasture scene with lamps sort of hidden until you put the light on. The sheep then come out! Yes it has the original lamp base as well. I was wondering how old it might be. We have never found any thing to identify where or who was the maker. Have you any thoughts.
