hi there. you are the reason i have been joining the club here. i saw some discussion of yours regarding french bubblelamps and that pic of those numerous beautifil bubblelamps on thst table ! i wanna have them all ! :)
i also started collecting when i lived in paris 10 years ago, heaven to check ou their brocantes and fleemarkets back then. i specialise in vintage glitterlamps and bubblelamps as i have always called them - the ones made of glass. is there someone who knows about those glass ones so i can understand more about them - any pics or specific sites you know about!?
thanks for your help, best wishes - G
