A Really Good Deal

3.16.2014

When I purchased my little brass lamp I had no idea if I had gotten a good deal or not. I new it was old and solid brass and I just loved the shape of it. I had looked at it at the antique mall several times and left without it until one time I decided to bring it home. The photo below is from the first post that I shared it in.

Well today I was looking through the vintage sales on One Kings Lane again when I spied this vintage bouillotte lamp. Hey, that looks just like mine.
It is just like mine, but they have the candles stuck in it which I have not done yet. Now just look at how much it is for sale for. What? $749? I had never heard of Chapman Lamps, but that is what I have. I found the label on it and it was made in 1972.

Chapman Bouillotte Lamp

$749.00




Now, I know I got a really good deal. I only paid $79! Yep, a whopping $79.

$1,649.00 Estimated Market Value
Oh, but look at what the estimated market value is that I copied from OKL. The lamp is for sale at 55% off.

Wow, I saved $1570 from the estimated value or $670 from the sale price!

Don't you love finding out you got a really good deal?


Me, too.
:)

It's a rainy day in Georgia.
Have a good one!

  11. What a deal! And what a beautiful lamp as well. It takes someone with a good eye to spot those. I have a pair of antique brass candlestick lamps in the shop and not too many take notice.

  15. I love deals like that too kim! I once got this ginormous brass dolphin for $25 and saw it for $450 on 1st dibs! I think the key is, just like your beautiful lamp, if it's really beautiful, it really will have REAL VALUE monetary wise in the end! So happy for you!

  22. You're so much clever than I! I found one in an empty-your-attic sale and I loved it, but it was a little more expensive than what I could pay. Then, back home I checked and they were so expensive on the Internet. I went back, but it was too late. Yours is lovely!
