@katbyter Ah, the Grandma Lamp. It’s like they appear spontaneously, the moment a grandchild is born. Kinda like the snow globes in the one Discworld story. Reaper man? I think that’s the one. Yeah, because the wizard who can’t die is in it. Good story. Great series. I think I’m primed for another read-through.
@simplersimon no grandchildren, but when my parents re-did the living & dining room my mom got a floor lamp version of one of those. honestly not sure what possessed her so it must be age related lol. i’ve always thought the “flowers” more resembled frank of donnie darko.
I went to a museum in Orlando that has the largest collection of Tiffany glass in the world. The lamps were impressive but nothing compared to the stained glass doors and windows he did. My favorite lamp Is the Aladdin oil lamp.
@tweezak I have an Aladdin mantle lamp, but never had the opportunity to use it; power outages in the summer are not the time to light up a 1500BTU lamp! Also bought out two hardware stores’ last sets of mantles many years ago so probably have a lifetime supply…
@RiotDemon Yeah, the fire is uncomfortably realistic for those of us living in fire-prone states! They are beautiful, aren’t they? My friend says his is quite fragile so finding one would be a real stroke of luck.
