Florence Art Restored!

I had all of these lamps sanded and brass plated. The all have all been rewired with new switches and sockets.
Finally, I cleaned and replaced the globes with new liquid and glitter.
I love them!

Thanks! If only I could get the cap off my mini single, I'd send it in!

There is a lighting shop in Austin called, "Brady's Distinctive Lighting".  They have been around for a long time, and they do amazing work.  They do all their own plating on site.  They are so busy - it took four months to get them done, but it was worth the wait.  

They not only refinished the bases and caps, but they also rewired them, installed new candelabra sockets, along with new push button switches.  Cost per lamp ranged between $100-$200.  Singles were less, doubles and triples were more.  For Florence Art, I think it's worth it.

They're like sparkly gems! Spectacular. About how much does it cost to get one sanded and plated?

Holy crap. Those are sparkling like a new penny. Good job.

Yes, the globes or bottles were all intact.  Cleaned them up and replaced the liquid, glitter, and screw top caps.

I believe these lamps were manufactured in the mid to late 1960s.

Now these really are 'Living Jewels'.

Definitely means the glitter liquid in the globes, of this I'm sure.

Superb as advised in your other thread but what do you mean "replaced the globes". Are you referring to the bottles and if so, were some damaged or no good?

Absolutely awesome. They look amazing. Fantastic job Kirk.
