Vintage Cherub Plaster Lamp

My husband and I absolutely love to go thrifting and junkin.
In fact,our younger daughter Taylor has grown to love it as well and she has a pretty good eye for things.

We were on our way home yesterday evening from having a wonderful meal at our favorite Cuban restaurant,when I suggested we buzz through a Goodwill that was on the same street.
Boy oh boy am I glad that we did!
As I turned the corner of one aisle and headed over to the lamps, this gorgeous lamp caught my eye. My stride sped up a bit.
Oh yeah, this is old, it is gorgeous,the detail is unbelievable.
I find myself just standing and gazing at this lamp. 
It has a few very minor chips and again paint that just adds to the vintage shabbiness of this piece,AND it works!
Mine. Mine. Mine.
I didn't dare try to lift it down from the upper shelf as it weighed a ton and I am on the shorter side. I stood there with my hand on it,as if I dared anyone to come closer..lol.
Finally my husband and daughter came into calling range."Hey Dave, come here.Check this out!"
In the buggy she went.

Now to find the perfect shade for her.
What would you suggest?

I seem to always have that problem, I have a lamp and can not find the perfect shade..I am looking now for two lamps I have....this base to this lamp is really nice. Have a great VTT!

This is a wonderful lamp....I always snatch up anything with cherubs on it when I'm at the thrift store and just re-vamped a cherub lamp that I will post on my blog soon.. Happy vintage thursday!

WOW! What a lamp!

I'd definitely go with a pleated cream shade-it would complement but not overpower or take away from the wonderful cherub base!
