OMG, it's those 1950s lamp shades again! AND... they're on driftwood looking bases JUST like the ones I used to have... before Hurricane Andrew ATE them in late August, 1992. These are different, though. The driftwood effect there is more distinctive, a little more dramatic. I don't know what these are, but the ones I had were chalkware from circa mid-1950's Miami. They were my parents' lamps. #Heartbreaker.
