This is another Prairie Style lamp made of Padouk and Douglas Fir along with Spectrum dark blue
and Spectrum Spirit Murano stained glass. It has four candleabra sockets, one bulb in the stem.
My inspiration was Frank Lloyd Wright and his Robie House near Chicago.

WOW – This may be your best lamp yet. I can’t help but notice the stained glass in the window behind the lamp. That looks FLW inspired also. You must have a FLW inspired house.

Overall the lamp is excellent. Every element complements the others so beautifully and harmoniously that it has a calming effect, almost Zen-like. Lovely. Thanks for sharing…........
