My parents lived in Germany while my dad was in the Air Force in the 60’s. Almost every weekend, they took a weekend jaunt to somewhere in Europe. This was during the time of Frommer’s popular travel guide, Europe on $5 a Day. It was the first travel guide written to show Americans how to afford to travel in Europe. Again, since the prices were so affordable back then (Authentic Rolex watches $100!!!!), my parents brought back some really neat souvenirs.
Recently while visiting my parents, I decided to take a look in the attic and I’ll spread these finds over several parts.
Part I- Marble Lamps
My parents purchased the set of 2 at a marble factory across the street from the Leaning Tower of Pisa. These are the real deal. My dad wired them and I added a simple shade I already had. I want to get silk shades, but these will have work for now.
Look at the veining. Love this.
A classic shape that is timeless.
Thanks MOM and DAD!
