This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
This download is part of the Victorian London Creator Challenge
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
After having found out that making lamps isn't as easy as I expected I proudly present you my entry for the challenge.
This small set contains:
-The Victorian Wall Lamp is a beautiful cast iron object with a globe made of milk glass.
-The Victorian Lamp on Pedestal has three globes and a nice brick pedestal, it will look great as a street lamp but also in your garden etc.

-The third new mesh is the Victorian Shop Sign, also made of cast iron. It has four stylish recolors.

All the objects were inspired by the style of Hay's Galleria in London. Here's a picture to campare the real and game objects:

I hope that you all like this objects and, if so, I'd be pleased if you told me or hit Thanks !

I love this set, it's so nice! Many may know that I really don't have any interest for the pure victorian theme but these objects can match also other styles and have a great look in many different locations too. However, they ARE victorian, I'm not saying they are not , on the contrary the victorian look is perfect and - in addition - they will certainly suit other taste. Thank you, great job Jon Kiss and ciao.

... and GOOD luck for the contest!

So pretty. I have just the place for them.

I'm worried that my latest Salvation Army donation will result in homeless people looking like sluts from the 90s.

I love these! I can REALLY use the lamps especially in my Victorian neigborhood to have more of a variety for lamps. I only have 2 lamps I use on the exterior, so this will make a lovely addition to changing up the look a bit. Thank you for creating and sharing these!
