I think he wants $893.88 plus $149 shipping for each lamp.
Assuming they don't literally mean $893.88 per item....it;s not a bad price for the collection I guess.
A little too pricey for me
i have been hunting for one of those lamps since a while now, but without any luck.
just so you knows i have to use a VPN internet connection just to browse ebay/ US so they won't restrict my searches result lol
so now searching eBay France, or UK or even Germany and when i finally found one, have to convince the seller to ship to Canada.... hahaha (failed!!!)
well i don't give up easily so any tips / help would be welcome, or if someone in here as one for sale would been even better lol
Welcome to We Love French Boilers Louis.
the boiler below arrived via the post today, safe and sound thankfully....and with its original box!
All working, but the bulb looks 'interesting' (and I have no idea how to remove it!).
Before I start researching it can anyone advise?
Swore I'd never buy another after accidentally breaking the original one I had, but couldn't resist this one :)
I just got the lamp in the picture above last week, I also have 2 like this but mine have the Leather on the top and bottom in White, one is Red & the other is Orange Check out my pictures. I got 3 Boilers last week! BEAUTY'S plus the Bubbler above. Great price you paid for these rare lamps! I have 3 Boilers & 3 Bubblers in my collection.
I picked up another french boiler recently at an antiques fair in Surrey, England, I paid just £25 for it. It's a smaller example of the one featured in the main picture above. Quite plain in compariosn to some of the amazing and varied designs. AC
Yes, "lampe a bulles" (lamp of bubbles, essentially) is a good search term. Now, I still don't know what these were actually called when they were new. All I know is that 1974 was sometime in their production period, and that F. Vaudan of Paris and S. Vera of Cleremont-Ferrand made some of them.
