More Lamps And Denim


Rose Bowl finds for July. Pair of beautiful copper industrial lamps, marked KIM MFG CO L.A CAL. These are going to make perfect exterior lamps, they have a workshop/marine look about them, not sure of their original purpose. JC Penny, Foremost, 1940's denim jacket, same pleats and buckle back design as 1st edition Levis 506xx big E jacket - I like the lower set front pocket. Tag detail of 1950's shop apron with owners name stitched into collar. Ladies French linen house shirt, great thread covered buttons and horse rider detail on front and back-from Euro-Linens stall.

those lamps are so nice. i also like the jacket with the low pocket placement. is that original? i have never seen that, but i am no denim expert. thanks for the posting

actually maybe the pocket appears lower because the jacket was shortened?

The lamps have some nice details to them, textured glass that's turned rose colored with age, copper rim clasps to hold glass in place etc.Jacket is unaltered, maybe the pocket is set lower to distinguish it from the Levis big E jacket design.
