One Man's Junk IS Another Man's Treasure...

Not a "quote" I always agree with. Most times junk is simply junk. But this time, you be the judge!

JUNK - I bought this piece of junk because I felt sorry for it. Probably made in the 1940's and used as a hanging lamp for the front of a home or business. It was lying in a pile of scrap metal intended for recycle. So, I gave the guy 5 bucks for the lot.

I sand-blasted - powder coated - re-wired - added some old green glass and botta-bing the ol' lantern is good for another 70 years!

Paid: 5.00
Blast & Coat: 25.00
Wire & socket: 5.00
Value: 75.00
