    Great lamp. I have a similar art deco torchiere with the same exact shade. However, mine does not have the art deco "Saturn" motif that yours does. I'm not sure of the manufacturer.

    Never seen anything like it -definitely not Canadian. Would look great against all the lamps I used to find. There used to be a fantastic lighting shop in NYC with the most fantastic lamps I'd ever seen in the 80's. That was the best time to find fantastic pieces. This one has one of the best stems I ever seen.

    Yes, after much looking I am quite positive it is made by a "hollywood set designer" and he has a number of lamps, some table I saw with the same glass at the bottom. He has repeated the saturn part for a number of his lamps and also made the airplane ashtray standing ashtray with the 1939 worlds fair base. In reality the airplane ashtray stand was produced originally in Canada only, had nothing to do with the worlds fair. A fair number of his lamps are advertised as worlds fair reproductions, which of course is a sellers lie, as they had nothing to do with the worlds fair. His lamps are all very expensive and were all produced after 1990 when I heard of the first of his models. In the 2000's a lot of them are being sold and now sometimes you will see people selling his lamps as originals. They seem nice in pictures but are not originals and though your lamp is a very nice reproduction, it still commands a very high price.

    The satin glass, at the bottom, is an original French Art Deco 1930s Vianne lamp globe which he combines into the design of his prototype light fixtures.

    Here is one of his lamps I found he is selling himself on ebay. It has the same saturn part and the satin glass part as your lamp does. The auction ends tonight I see. His name is Rick DeRico. Hope this give you all the info you need.
    I found his website on the web also.
