UPCYCLED TALL LICENSE PLATE SCALE & STRAINER LAMP:

Before I start, I wanted to let you know that all my "found object" creations are custom pieces. There will never be another piece exactly like it because my found parts dictate what the end result will be. I try to use all "found" parts in hopes to recycle items and extend their life and keep them away from landfills. I guess you could call them "green creations."

Two sets of vintage matching license plates (red & light blue) ad the flash to this great upcycled, recycled lamp. I modified the license plates into a perfect square to fit the top of the really old, vintage weigh scale. There's even a modified copper tube coming out of the bottom to hold the cord permanently and not allow it to rub anything as the scale is still able to go up and down! An old large kitchen strainer and muffin mold create the shade and create a beautiful lighting pattern. A vintage porcelain/enamel lid worked for a sturdy base for this tall one of a kind lamp.

Here are the measurements...
Height: 33"; Width (side to side): 12.5"; Depth: 8.25".

***I INSIST on the customer using either a CFL bulb (60 watt max) or an LED bulb in my custom lamps. Standard incandescent bulbs make the fixtures unnecessarily hot and the new, alternate bulbs are better for the environment and your electric bill.

All of my creations are carefully and securely packaged. I ship exclusively with FedEx because I've found them to be the safest form of shipping and provide the best handling and care of my items. I also provide a FedEx tracking number upon shipping your item(s). If actual shipping seems a little higher, it's because I use slightly larger boxes to make sure your one-of-a-kind item arrives safely to you and is packed appropriately. I offer FREE INSURANCE that is including in the shipping and handling price.

A lot of time and love went into each one of my pieces. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it.

****SHIPPING NOTICE: Because this item is a few hours away from my home base, please allow for 4 to 6 weeks (but probably sooner) for me to ship this item to you. I will be in contact with you about exactly when I'll be able to ship this item to you. Because I have a few locations that I display my creations, some are here in town with me (Shreveport, LA) and some are in Austin, TX.
