Sometimes I buy a vintage light just because I feel sorry for it.
Like this fixture.
It is from the 1920s. It had been rewired not long ago. Badly. Very badly. If anybody had tried to use the fixture it would have instantly shorted out. Scary.
There were also new white plastic candle covers. A cheap new chain from Home Depot. And after the recent rewiring the arms had not been properly re-attached so they hung at odd angles like drunks.
Poor baby. I just had to rescue it.
