French Bouillotte Lamp

Oh Goodwill was really GOOD this week.  I found a fabulous French Bouillette  lamp.



When I walked through the lamp section of GW I did a really fast doubletake.  I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this lamp.  I have loved them for years, but they have always been way out of my price range since they can be upwards of $300.


 Isn't the shade on this one stunning and in perfect condition.  You can tell someone loved it and cared for it.


 The price is unreal and on top of that it was 25% off day.  Now I can't tell you how fast this jumped in my basket and I didn't let it out of my sight until I checked out and put it in my car.


 I think it is a perfect upgrade for the hoosier in the guest bedroom.


You twist the little decorative arrow handle at the top to lower the shade.  It adjusts up and down anywhere you would like it.


 I love how elegant it looks with the shade all the way to the top.  It shows the pretty candle sleeves off beautifully.  It holds two bulbs and the switch allows you to have the left or right lights by themselves or both at once.


I had a little antique tin can lamp there before,  - - - - - 


but this is a stunning upgrade don't you think!!!


Don't you just love it when you are blessed with such a fabulous treasure.

  15. Yours is exactly like mine, Marty. I have mine on a small table in our living room. I tried it on the secretary first but ended up using it on the table.

    I found mine at a resale shop a couple of months ago. Slightly more than 9.99, but not much more. Had no idea what they were selling for. I should do some research.

    Mine is in good shape too. Saw it as soon as I walked into the shop. I let the shop owner know I wanted it, when I saw it. Didn't want it to leave the shop while I was browsing elsewhere, LOL!
