In the cities in the streets there's a tension you can feel,
The breaking strain is fast approaching, guns and riots.
Politicians gamble and lie to save their skins,
And the press get fed the scapegoats,
Public Enema Number One.

Wow, wow, wow.  :o

That is just amazing. Words fail me.

And the lamp is incredible too. How did you do that? Was it lathed?

Thanks everyone, for all the positive feedback.

This has been the most challenging model I've ever made, but it has been fun, and I've learnt a lot about motors, electronics, Ohms Law, etc etc!

The lamp/candlestick/vase thing (does anyone know WHAT this actually was?) was turned in wood by a talented wood-turning friend.
It then had gold coloured leaf rather badly attached to it by me, but it works quite nicely in the set.

Here's one in colour...

I've always assumed it to be a very large brass vase.

Hello pretty.  Where have you been?

Very nice indeed. The - and I merely quote - "badly attached" gold leaf helps the effect, as it mimics the fine inlaid patterns of the original.

It's a Syrian (Damascene) floor lamp:

That particular one is enamelled - but you get the idea.

Another one in brass:

Check the price... Bargain! I'll have two.  :P

I should have known you'd know what it was Chris :)

Nice find!

The brass one you link to, do you think it's the same size? My eyes say smaller...

why doesn't the Guide mention them? - Oh, it's not very accurate.
Oh? - I'm researching the new edition.
