Check out batwrangler's awesome research on this very gorgeous bat lamp that turned up on pinterest!

Wow! Did you buy it?
maybe after my six figure deal... if I get one.
I think we're all hoping that you'll get that anyway!

When I made the first comment I hadn't been able to get the link to work, but I've read the research now.

If I see something like that in the Portobello Road market I'm going to be trying to haggle it down to £10, even knowing that it would have to be one of the imitations or the one that was stolen.

I've bought a Tiffany lamp in that street market for £10, in the past (well, actually, I got 2 for £10. One shade was broken but with the glass still held by the surrounding strips; the other had damage to the lamp itself that made the wiring tricky - so I ended up with a functioning flowered Tiffany shade on functioning abstract Tiffany lamp.

(The cracked abstract shade and the stalks and flowers lamp are now put to to one side to await repair. I probably can rewire the second lamp but I doubt if I could make the repair look authentic.) Neither would ever have been as well balanced as that bat lamp.
That's really, really awesome about the Tiffany Lamp.
Oh, wow. That's beautiful!
