I realize that it's not to every one's taste but I love it. I found it at SA for $25.00 during the Christmas holidays. $25.00 was a lot right then but I felt that if I didn't buy it then it would be gone.
Since I read Robin Brown's A Bit of Velvet & A Dash of Lace http://www.magnoliapearl.com/book.htm I've had peacocks on my brain. She tells stories of being raised in the company of 400 peacocks. In one of the stories she figures out how to get candy money by pulling the peacock's tail feathers out and inserting a feather into the eraser of a pencil. She then sells the pencils to the kids in class. She says how beautiful it was to look out over the classroom and see all of the peacock feathers swaying and dipping as the children wrote.
Back to the lamp. What really makes this beautiful is the shade. In the daytime it looks much like a beautiful peacock. Diane
