Thrifted Thursday



Thrifted usually implies cheap, but how about free, or stolen. I was once in a mortuary in Paris, the hospital was getting demolished within the week, and i saw beautiful lamp. First instincts were to lightly tear it out of the wall, i did. The Lamp is made by Jielde in France around the 1950's, it's a great monument to my youthful delinquency.

  2. Cool lamp!

    They were probably going to leave it in the building during demolition. You saved it!
