Now I want one of these

Posted on Fri, 25 Nov 2011 by midcenturyjo

That’s what happens when I real estate stalk. I see things I never knew I needed, have nowhere for them and must have whatever it is regardless. The hunt is one. I want a gramophone trumpet as a lampshade. I wonder how long it takes me to track one down at a ridiculously bargain price?

Now, this is where I help you … I walked home passed a house in Bardon the other day and the lads were dragging a gramophone trumpet off the back of a trailer. It was the size of the trailer. I've never seen a gramophone trumpet as big as a small car. In fact, I'm sure I sure I saw a smaller one in their front yard.

I'll knock on their door to see if they have something.

I spotted some years ago at The Country Trader in Sydney, but a bargain price they were not! So, didn't buy them and regretted it ever since.

I too saw these at the Country Trader last year… gorgeous, gorgeous, and I wish I had sold my car to finance them! (pricey, yes)

Why not try making one yourself?

OH MY GOD that kitchen is beautiful. I've never seen cabinetry like that, pure white with nothing to make it just look like a wall. Really opens up that narrow and space with a giant table. Combined with the windows, it doesn't seem so claustrophobic.

I am an owner of a restaurant in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin ( and we have a light fixture that features a gramaphone. It was made by a studio here in town called Refined Rustic. You can see the fixture on our website. Happy hunting.
