Pair of Vintage Lamps

 The view from my kitchen out to the dining room and patio.

(Yes, *hangs head in shame* that is store-bought snack toast (zwieback). The kid likes it, and it makes incredible pie crusts.)

I'd guess these are late 60's, early 70's. The pair cost $2.00 at the Sarpy County sale last summer. One lamp has been taken by my son for his desk, and the other sits in my kitchen.  I was going to re-do the shades with some fabric, but I sort of like the patina decades of smoking gave them (I'm guessing that's it). Anyway, I couldn't go wrong for the price.
