I've had this lamp for a good while now but it has been on the shelf all this time without a fettle. Why? Well because it is in superb condition with all indications of being fired but once. It's one that was put on the backburner as I had a few serious restorations to do. However it is now done and in all its glory. I am not going to fire it just yet as I want to enjoy it as is for now.
