    I found a lamp I really liked and my mom got it for me for Christmas. She says the bottom and top just don't go together and look strange together. I think it looks cute and doesn't look all that out of place. What do you think?

    and do you think the base was modeled after a certain breed or just made up by the maker?

    Well, I like it. I think it's cute. It's a conversation piece!

    While I would agree that they don't really *go* together, I think the overall effect is fantastic and I would buy it myself. It's what I like to call 'eccentric' decor. :->

    I'm voting with your mom here. It's definitely strange as all heck. But, in all honesty, when I was about 19 I would have thought it was awesome as a pure example of American kitch. It's the type of thing you have to look at several times to appreciate fully--almost perfect in its weirdness.

    I think its kinda odd looking because of the size of the parts. [​IMG]

    Its cute, but a chicken is WAY bigger than a rose in real life, and thats probably what throws folks off.

    I agree with Wildsky. It's almost like the chickens are fairy chickens.

    Quote:That's what throws me off. It seems like the two parts don't go together much at all (but neither do those chickens wearing clothes and pulling a cart...)... [​IMG] However, if you like it, and you think it's cool, display it with pride! I think it's very pretty, and a nice conversation piece.
