Mid Century Modern Lamp Restoration

Turns out these are Gerald Thurston for Lightolier Table Lamps!

A dear friend came to me seeking my assistance in restoring this pair of lamps handed down from her father in Law.

Fortunately the original shades and diffusers were located in the basement of the home by her husband who had remembered them from his childhood.

The fittings were solid brass and with some persistent polishing they came out really nice. The wood refinished nicely and diffusers were repainted also.

Topped off with remade linen shades this pair looks ready for the set of Mad Men. As an added treat we found out that these table lamps are Gerald Thurston for Lightolier.
