I'm in love with this genuine Victorian era brass clock and mirror combo that I found on ebay... at a price that I can't even think about! I'm more likely to be able to afford something more like this-
That is, if I purchase one that doesn't work. I saw them on ebay for as low as $20.
Something like this would be pretty awesome too, but once again, it is way out of my price range.
Now I'm going to show you what I have managed to find, that I think will work.
This lamp is vintage and brass, two crucial criteria. It is also very functional, as this will be my Library corner, where I'll want to curl up with my books. I especially like the heavy brown base. It sort of grounds the bright brass, don't you think?
