Some 20 years ago I received an antique floor lamp with a mica shade from my father as a gift. The lamp part of it still works. It seems to have a lighter that you can pull out to light a cigar/pipe/cigarette. It's very heavy. Recently, I went online and to antique and lamp shops trying to find out more about it but with little success. Someone told me she thought it was called a smoker's lamp. I have attached a few photos of it. Any help or guidance in learning more about the lamp's history and value would be most appreciated. Can't wait until the smoke clears on this antique.

Cordially,

Arline

    Hi there...I have the exact same lamp and have been highly unsuccessful in garnering info. have you found a maker's mark even? all i know about mine is that it came from a wealthy woman's estate. outside of paying for a sotheby's expert, I'm stumped. please let me know if you find out any tidbits. thanks,
    p.s. mine has the ashtray cup insert, but not the lighter cap.

    I was given my grandfather's lamp yesterday. It is the same lamp. Mica shade has cracks and breaks and I am going to have it repaired. Any suggestions? On the underside of the very bottom is "1000" in fairly large letters. My grandfather always referred to the lighter as a "cigar" lighter. The lighter is rimmed in wood.
