Interesting story: My mom got this lamp for my sister at the goodwill, she gave it to me.

Wow! and later I I'm looking in the 1940's catalog and I found our bed. My people are Sears people. Sturdy and average. Overcooking the green beans etc. I embrace it. Pass the milk and the hammer. I wouldn't have it any other way.
