It was love at first sight the first time I spotted an antique alabaster lamp! Their hand carved beauty gets me every time!

  1. I have 1 which is similar to your middle one in your top photo. The silk grey shade brings out the subtle colors in my lamp

    1. I got floral shades for two of my lamps, but I’m not really digging the floral. I am definitely going to try gray now!! Thank you so much!!!

  2. Oh my goodness your lamps are so gorgeous, and you have styled them perfectly. I am featuring you today at TFT! Thanks for linking up. Can’t wait to see what you share this week!

    1. Thank you so much!! You’re the sweetest!!

  3. This post is perfect. I love to collect vintage pottery, Fiesta Ware, frogs, thermoses, chairs and linens. I have a storage locker to store out of season items. I walk a fine line between collecting and hording. So glad I found this beautiful post on the link party. Happy Summer, Kippi

  5. I fell in love with these lamps years ago, when Rachel Ashwell first introduced them on her Shabby Chic tv show….but whenever I saw one for sale, they were just too pricey. Then early one day at a flea market, a young girl was selling off all of her grandmas stuff….she had one of these, a larger size one, the alabaster in beautiful condition…no shade, but it had its original finial….and it needed to be rewired. I asked the price – $5!!! I carried it around for the rest of the day, lost count of how many shoppers asked me where I got it. Cost me $30 to get it rewired. One of my best finds ever at a flea market.

    1. Sounds like an amazing find!! I would love to see it! Alabaster lamps are so beautiful!!
