CRAFTSMAN STYLE WALL LIGHTS. 16" high. 8-9" square. Illustrated without panels, but designed to accept panels. It would be easy to cut your own panels to fit. I can supply panels made of velvet polycarbonate, rice paper, art glass, opal glass, opal plastic, etc. For exterior use I recommend velvet polycarbonate panels, which I can supply for $50. Union made in USA. Underwriter's laboratory approved. Made of plastic designed to look like distressed wood. $60 without panels.

ART VASE. Stable with a heavy base. 12" high. 7" in diameter at the base, 4" at the top. Weighs 9#. It may be signed by Lisa Elright. $20

SCULPTOR'S TABLE, solid oak base, hand wrought hardware, craftsman style construction, splayed legs with cross bracing, mortice and tenon joinery, 27.5" high, 24X24X2" solid maple top, weighs ~80#, top revolves--but not too easily because you want your workpiece to stay put, decades old--from university sculpting laboratory, top is newer, because the top is removable, it may be shipped via UPS. $400. This table is really well built. Sculptors pounded stone on this tabletop; it is designed to support hundreds of pounds. When I got it, the original top was a bunch of oak wood fibers loosely held together because of the pounding and weight it had suffered over the years. The legs, however, are as sturdy as new. I am currently using it in my machine shop. The piece of equipment on it in the 1st photo weighs over 100#; it will support a whole lot more. I now have a 30" diameter maple butcher block tabletop available that you may have in place of the square top. Although, personally, I would prefer the square top with clipped corners--resulting in an 8 sided top to more closely match the base; I'll neatly clip the corners of the square top for you for $50.

STERLING SILVER EARRINGS: DIETZGEN TRANSIT REFLECTORS, VINTAGE 1940s. These woud make pretty attractive earrings as is, with only the addition of a hanger of your choice. You need do little other than polish them and touch up or remove the paint on the back side. Designed as reflectors meant to be used in telescope tubes of Dietzgen transits. They sat at 45 degrees within the tube. The viewer looked through the center hole. There is a matte black painted side and a shiny side. There is a little tab with a hole in it at one end that was used to hold the mirror reflector in place. Back in the 1940s Silver, Gold, Jewels, copper rich solid brass, even Black Widow spider thread was used in transits. My how things have changed! These are, in fact, new-old-stock, complete with decades of scratches and tarnish from storage. I cleaned up a couple of them with a little silver polish and less than a minute of time. The remainder were left as found. It is amazing how well they have held up. But then that is why they chose Silver; it is not much susceptable to tarnish. I had a total of 55 of them; I now have 48 left. My balance beam scale only goes up to 220 grams without additional weights, so I weighed 25 of them.....which weighed 208 grams. Divide 208 by 25 and the result is 8.32. I then put one Silver oval on the scale and it did indeed weigh 8.32 grams. All 55 weigh 457.6 grams. They are about 2.5" long including the tab. They are about 0.025" thick. Shipping is the same price for one as for all. So, the more you buy, the better the price each. I will also pay for insurance on whatever you order. $10 each. $10 shipping for one or all. I sold one to an artist who said she planned to make a broach out of it. It would make a nice cameo. It could hang from a chain around the neck.
