The Lamp and Crafty Links

 A few weeks ago I spotted a women pulling this beautiful lamp out of her van at the antique market.  She gave me a great price...but hesitated actually giving it to me.  She really liked it too!  I am so glad I got it.  I have never seen anything like it.  The attached plate is perfect for potpourri!  I would put candy there...but then the dish would always be empty.
Now that I have had the lamp for two weeks I have given some more thought to the plate.  I wonder if it was an ashtray?
