I can't get enough of Susanin's

A while back I wrote about my favorite auction house, Susanin's, in Chicago.  They have fantastic things in each sale and they are really reasonably priced.......but not if you include shipping to LA.  I should probably resist perusing their auction catalogs, but I can't!  Here are my top picks in the current sale: 

 $50/$100 - PAIR OF GESSO AND GILTWOOD WING FORM SCONCES. With plug or wire mounting application 36" x 13"   The lamp I will see again, but that lamp shade is one in a million.
