curious


Fella spotted this amazing lamp at the Christie Antiques Show.

At first I thought it was hideous.

But then I took a closer look and saw how incredible it was.
(I really should have taken more pictures. Blast.)
I guessed it's an "Owl and the Pussycat" lamp, even though there wasn't a direct reference to the poem/story other than the presence of both an owl and a pussycat.
I'm guessing it's art deco but that is, as I said, a guess.

Ever seen anything like it?
We totally would have bought it
but the guy wanted  around $400 for it.
We could see why but it was out of our budget.
I guess it will be one of the ones  that got away.
Because really, how many could there be?
