"sigh" -- I wish my husband had such positive things to say about it. Thank you, everyone!
When I got it, my husband also said he'd light it from the inside, putting a LED in the part with the white 'mottling' and bubbles. I got mad at him and told him it's a lampbase, not a lamp. It should look traditional, with lampshade and all. That's when he started calling out all the names of saints... :spls: He said if I want 'traditional', then I should stick a candle at the top.
For the time being, it's pretending to be a vase in my unit with all my other Skrdlovice vases. "sigh" again.
