Thrifted pretties: electric lamps

I discovered an electrified oil lamp in one of my local thrift stores. It is on my little nightstand, now, with a velvet posy beside it and a black crocheted doily underneath.

Intrigued by the concept of electrified oil lamps, I looked into their manufacture. You can, apparently, buy kits to make an electric lamp out of an old oil one. The electric component just screws on to the top.

I think it's a wonderful idea, and looks charmingly old fashioned. Now I'm on the lookout for a pretty pair of oil lamps to make into electric lamps for my living room.
