This lamp has been in our family for well over 50 years. Anyone have any ideas about a possible maker? I can not locate any markings on the lamp. The Lamp is 27"H and the base is 8"W, The Shade measures 20"W.
The Lamp has been passed down from my Grandparents, to my Mother and now to me. It is operational and has no damage. The electrical cord was replaced at some time and no base plate is present.
I have no idea as to the value of the lamp.

    beautiful slag glass lamp! Looks like quality a made item with nice filigree. You might look into Miller until one of the lamp experts comes along.

    Your lamp was made by the Pittsburgh Lamp Brass and Glass Co. and usually signed PLB&G Co. The were more known for their reverse paint lamps and shades. But in the case of lamps like yours with a lit base, they seldom signed them. Value is base on rarity and condition. If you go to http://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/10469619 and http://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/10407965 and http://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/6770894 you will see similar lamps to yours. Auction value is $600.00-$1,200.00. Retail, add $500.00-600.00.
    I hope this helps.
