Three Caithness Lamp Bases
« on: September 26, 2012, 03:03:23 PM »
Just bought - three Caithness lamp bases - one in heather, one in moss and one in neodymium - I don't see these so often and not in such great condition, one still has the fitting glued on from factory. One has a 60s 70s label. Very glad to have bought them for under a tenner each at a local charity shop.

Thanks Adam

3 bargains, well done!  ;D
I do like a lot of the old the Dohmnall O'Broin designs..... as long as they don't have blasted bits on them!

 ;D I'm not keen on neodynum either, but yes, the others are fabby - and when put into use and lit, even better! - calm, elegant, understated and beautiful.
