"Second Cup is on the House" -CoffeeTime LampJanuary 7th, 2010 in member junk
Everybody loves a free second cup!! This one is made of multi colored cups and saucers ( note the different cup handle silhouettes) with an old Maxwell House 1 lb tin as the base. The shade is a conical shaped ,and covered in 3 fabric panels with retro signs and phrases , then skirted with a whimsical beaded trim. I drilled a hole through the backside of the tin, then added a rubber grommet to protect the wire. The center wiring is inside of threaded lamp pipe secured to the underside of the tin lid and the inside of the top cup.
This was one of my first ones venturing outside of the 'cups/ saucers only' format.....always gets a grin.....and 'Good to the Last Drop!' Titled, signed and dated; socket switch.
