Here is one of my favorite items from ebay. I found this lamp on ebay a few years ago, the shell was painted black and it was very dirty. However, it was a buy now for $100.00. I figured the parts were worth much more than that so I bought it. When it came I took it all apart and stripped the paint from the shell. The helmet was in mint condition under the paint. I carefully cleaned the gold plated pieces and then had the lamp re-wired and bought a shade (the shade cost more than the helmet). The helmet is dated 1873 and even has the original liner. The only thing not original is a brass plate covering the ares where the horsetail was in the rear of the helmet.

Boy, my Mom always jokes about the phase of everything being able to be turned into a lamp! I think this is cool! Fun eBay find, that's for sure!
