A Pane, the Picture and a Lamp-stand

Pane, Picture,Lampstand 

A trio of items that were not originally intended to be together, but then- it just all came together

  Pane, Lampstand pref 

This little bird-cage style lantern was discovered just recently and had for a great bargain.  There did exist a thin tin decorative border around the base that just didn’t seem to match- so- off it came!
