I put it that way because they think they are creating art.

I think it looks pretty good, actually....I've read how others feel about telephone lamps, and I am usually in agreement with not destroying candlesticks. These 500 sets, as many as there are - let a few go as a lamp, fine by me.

Why is it that you never see a 500 set with a dial blank made into a lamp?

Looks like a Junior Achievement project to me. The kids made them and sold them as a business project. They had a sponsor that helped create the project and got them the parts.
I think the Telephone Pioneers sponsored this project.
Just my guess,

Mending feces? Sounds like a smelly job!
