I just love and always wanted to have the Emeralite Lamp, more commonly known today as a ‘banker’s lamp’.
Its was a nice surprise to come back home from hospital (I broke my arm when ice-skating) and see my dream lamp on the table in the living room.
So lovely to use it in the evening with no any other lights around.
Ifounf this picture on internet on this site-
Harrison D. McFadden was a designer of the lamp.
In 1909 that the first Emeralite lamp was produced
The Emeralite Lamp, more commonly known today as a ‘banker’s lamp’ is an iconic design, characterised by a brass stand and green glass lamp shade.
These unique lamps were originally produced in Czechoslovakia under order by H.G. McFaddin & Co.
I like that the shade does not have any sharp corners; instead, they are rounded giving a truly unique, beautiful design.
The lamp was originally designed with white opal glass on the interior side and a layer of green glass on the outside.

I Love Lucy
I always was interested in life of Lucille Ball.
For the first time I have seen ‘I Love Lucy’ on TV when I was 27 years old.
She is my comic legend, beautiful and amazing!!!!
‘Lucille worked as a model and bit-part actress before finding international fame in the Fifties with her comedy series – I Love Lucy.
The show, in which she starred with her husband Desi Arnaz, was so popular that, in 1953, the pair signed an 48 million contract
The book I am reading now.
My husband bought me this book.
