I was in my hometown briefly this weekend (I drive my dad to and from the home Ohio State football games) and got a chance to hit my special spots. I didn't find much, just one thing... but what a thing!
It's a Maurizio Tempestini for Laurel Lighting, abstract, cast brass table lamp designed in the late 1950's.
I paid $6.99, without knowing what I was buying other than it was an incredibly cool brass lamp. When I Googled "abstract brass lamp", BOOM, there it was... with a FOUR figure price attached! I even have the original shade, which is a tad beat-up, and seems to be missing from almost all of these lamps. sadly the base has seen better days and will need some repair work, possibly a new veneer.
