Original table lamps made with vintage Automobile Petrol and Aladdin Paraffin Cans.
When I bought these cans in a market they were in need of a good cleaning and some tlc.
I gave them both a good clean and gently sanded down some paint that was peeling off. I then gave them 2 coats of satin varnish to protect them and avoid any further paint peeling.
Both cans still retain their original stickers.
The Automobile can is French and together with the original sticker it also has the metal star at the top.
The Aladdin Pink Paraffin can has the same stickers on both sides, a moving handle at the top and the original beaker.
Both cans have a very interesting shape and would look great on any side table adding a touch of quirkiness to any room.
Has shown in the pictures a lampshade could be added to give it a less industrial look. If instead you decide to have the light bulb showing I think a vintage industrial filament light bulb would look very appropriate.
