I picked this lamp up at an estate sale. I was immediately drawn to it when I first saw it because of its uniqueness, the beautiful detail, and how it simply put out a soft glow threw the detail at night. However I cannot find much on the era, what style it is, or much on it at all. It is very heavy, possibly brass base & maybe copper pole & lanterns, with 3 prisms on each side.
Is it rare? Or just one of those "something only a mother could love" type of lamps? If anyone could be of help I'd appreciate it. I would love to be able to tell people who visit something other than, "got it at an estate sale, isn't it pretty?"

    Hi! I just was doing some research on a floor lamp we just picked up at a sale and stumbled across this! It is very very much the same maker.. Just different shape lanterns! Have you learned anything more about it? We are very curious too!

    Sometimes called Hollywood Regency lamps which means 1960's to 1970's. On a lot of sets the only piece marked is a table lamp with the set. I hate the words Holl..Reg as they have nothing to do with Hollywood or especially nothing Regency about it. These type were usually fitted with a wire mesh cylinder to soften the lights. These the owners may have taken them out as the lights are very bright. There are always versions popping up on ebay also. I have a set wtih the date and maker on the table lamp but not similar to yours.

    Might be a bit earlier -- 1950's maybe.....? There were Floor lamps, and also those metal TENSION Floor Lamps too

    here are some other examples:,+mid-century&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiaw_Htt6fJAhVX5GMKHfQ-DeQQ_AUIBygB&biw=1366&bih=667

    Agree with BLADERUNNER -- Really nothing to do with Hollywood, or Regency....just a name given.
