    Okay, that has to be the best lamp base I have seen in a loooong while.

    Thanks Lynn, just picked up two more exactly like this one... Supposedly if they work they are worth $250 and that what I sold the last one for as a lamp. Had no idea they were in such high demand. I consider this to be my show piece. Thanks for noticing...😃😊
