The second I took it out of the f box , I could see how well it was made.
Not exactly normal these days. I have an antique home and as so many other old home owners I have quite a few down hanging lamps ie bridge lamps that use the Uno lamp shade . So… I’m lucky I found you on line and know that others would do well to buy from Paxton Hardware . Thanks Liz Torre
I love your old days QUALITY!
