I found this on the web and could not believe my eyes.

Look at the date on the lampbase (in the blurb).

I don't know what to call this other than hideous. Did you see the ridiculous estimate? This outfit is a joke; I've noticed before that they usually have outrageous estimates and, apparently, reserves to match, because they often repeatedly re-post things that closed at reasonable prices. I don't even look at their stuff anymore.

Like the Grueby lamp they have listed about 20 times over the past year.

I didn't know the seller had a reputation.

To me, it is just unbelievably ugly. It will be interesting to see if anybody bids on it. The design of the whole thing is beyond words.

I just wanted somebody beside me to see what was being passed off as A & C.

They claim that it sold for $350 dollars but there are no records of any bidding. It that normal for a live auction?

Honestly, I can't believe that anybody bid on this thing.
