Mel and I picked these up the first time we ever went to second Sunday under the bridge in Sacramento. They were just sitting on a dealers table and I was astonished that no one had nabbed them yet. This was the worm on the hook that made Mel and I devoted second Sunday visitors. When I got them the gold was aged and peeling and the cords were cut. Easy fixes with some spray paint and some cord. The shades are in good shape so I never messed with them. Anyways these will be sold as well once I get home to start the process. I hope you like them too!
