I found these at Goodwill the other day, sitting among the vases. But  they’re not vases! They’re Mid Century Murano glass pendant lamps.
If you look inside, you can see that they are actually made of two  layers of glass: orange on the outside (and what an orange!) and white  on the inside.
Finding the parts to resurrect them as pendant lamps shouldn’t be too  hard. There are several lamp parts distributors online. Can’t wait to  put them together.
So remember: when thrifting, look at everything! You never know what you might find in the “wrong” place.
