Paul's Base Collection

I have decided to liquidate my collection of old bases, because I'm never going to find time to make shades for any of these. I have been accumulating them for over 20 years, and close to 100 will be put up for sale on this page over the next few weeks. So check regularly. They vary all over the map in terms of quality, size and condition, and I have priced them accordingly. They are guaranteed to be old and not modern repros. The maker is listed when known, along with our educated guess as to what size shade would look good on the base. They will be fitted with old sockets (not necessarily matching finish) and wired; otherwise they are sold "as is." Wheels or caps do not come with the bases, but adaptations can be discussed with Jenny. The listed price includes packing, but not shipping or any extra work that you can talk Jenny into.
