The scrap yard, as you know is one of my favorite destinations when I travel. This pair of lamps I have pictured are from a wonderful piece of 19th century fencing with a great silver paint. So, off to the welders they went.
When I got them back from him, I was searching for a great paper to pair them with. As I was looking through my vintage papers, I came across a stack of Topography Maps, dating 1905 that I had purchased years ago. To make it even better, I had some from areas near to where I am located. Saugerties, Ulster and Catskill are some of the towns that are on these maps.
I wonder, these fence pieces came from upstate New York, could they have come from one of the towns that I have pictured.
Check out Good Scrap Yard Part 1 & Part 2 to see what other fabulous finds I created into to lamps. I seem to be drawn to orange as a color to include for the shade making, the rust pairs so nicely with that color.
Have a wonderful weekend.
