I don’t know how anyone could have missed the antiques table on the floor of the house when it was a vintage antique table with a light fixture in the middle.
The light fixture was an antique brass lamp.
The house has a broken lamp.
It was built in 1921 and is worth around $1,000.
It has been sitting in the house since it was built.
The lamp broke when a new light fixture fell in.
I think the family was trying to be clever, but I was shocked when I found out that it was an old antique lamp.
It’s the second time in the past six months I have been able to get a lamp repaired, thanks to the help of a friend of mine, Dr Lisa Ketchum.
She is a licensed and registered specialist in antique lighting, which is what she does.
“The most common problem I see is the light fixture that falls out,” Dr Ketchums said.
“Sometimes it’s in the kitchen or somewhere in the living room and you just want to see it repaired.”
You have to make sure that it is not damaged and if it’s not damaged, then you can go straight to the store to buy replacement bulbs.
“Dr Ketchups work with antique lamp manufacturers to make a new lamp.
If you have a broken light fixture, you can always buy replacement.”
It’s a good opportunity for the builder to put their own stamp on it and give it a new lease of life,” Dr Clare said.
It all started with an antique lamp in a bathroom cabinet.”
A friend of ours in Sydney told me about a broken, antique lamp,” Dr Skelton said.
She told me it was in a hallway in her family’s Sydney home.
I don’t really know how I could have known, but she was so excited about it, and told me she would call the police if I didn’t come out and check it out.
Dr Katchums said that was when she got a phone call from a local antique lamp maker.
The police came out and I thought to myself, ‘I hope they are good people’.”
The police were really friendly, and the owners really wanted to see what could be done,” Dr Lisa said.
The owner of the old lamp said the lights were in a private home and would be returned to the owner in the coming days.
The lamp was then taken to the NSW Police Service for a forensic examination.”
They actually took photographs and they showed me a photo of the light in the cabinet, so they knew exactly what was inside,” Dr Cressida said.
There were three different types of antique lamps in the old house, all of which had light fixtures in the same place.”
I was surprised to see that they had the same lamp in the bathroom cabinet and it wasn’t the same light,” Dr Eustice said.
That led Dr Sahlton and Dr Katchum to take a look at the old light fixture.”
We started by taking a picture of the lamp and then the light was taken out of the cabinet,” Dr Bannister said.
We took out the light, we replaced the light and then we put the lamp back in.
Dr Lisa said that when they got the lamp repaired it was worth around half of the price of the original light fixture which was worth $1.75 million.”
If you had bought the light from someone who wanted it replaced, then I would say it was more expensive, but it was still worth it,” Dr Tuff said.
