Ok, so this is not the lamp I am talking about, but there was another pair of lamps delivered and much to my dismay only one arrived intact. The other lamp is now spare parts. This is what can happen if you deal with some of the shady  sellers on E bay. Now I am not saying all E bay vendors are shady, just some.

Anyway I am now comitted to repairing this lamp too, by the time this is all over I will be pretty good at it so if you need advice just let me know!
