Any information would be helpful on the lamps. Interested in their value. The pitcher is 9.5" tall and 4" in diameter at the base. The pitcher was in my brother in law's collection and is original, looks hand made. The handle was applied to the pitcher and not molded. There are some fine bubbles in the glass. The diamond pattern is three dimensional on the inside with the outside smooth. Found an old receipt in the bottom for $100. Any information would be appreciated.

    The date on the first lamp is about right, give or take a few years. We have the same one. Ours originally belonged to my mother in law. I don't at all question the age but the price you are giving is what I would call inflated unless it is totally unique. Regardless they are pretty neat. Thanks for showing them.

    The first lamp dates before 50 years ago. This style was prevalent in the early 1900s, though could have been sold even into the 1920s. People in some rural parts did not have electricity even at this late date and were still using gas and kerosene lighting. There was a revival of the "Gone With the Wind" lamp as early as the late 1930s, so called, of course, due to its presence in the movie of the same name (which in reality was inaccurate bc this style did not exist during the Civil War era). Later lamps do not have the detail that older lamps do, the colors are not the same, and the hardware differs too. This revival was part of the "quaint" "Early American" look, which in reality had nothing to do with early America. But people loved it.

    When purchased, this lamp was already 50 years old. It was purchased from an antique dealer and I believe it was originally an oil lamp.

    Today I purchased a lamp like the first one on the left except its not the original top and the bottom looks so much like yours. I got it at a small antique store in my town and don't know anything about it except I like it, lol, and on the inside base it has the number 1082. Would you be willing to call me, I will call you right back so you don't have a phone charge, or email me? If not I understand. Thank you.

    I have the a lamp similar to the first one. It is still an oil lantern not converted to electricity. It has all original mechanisms including wick. It is a Wright & Butler Duplex Lantern the company is out of Binghamton NY . I just picked it up at a garage sale. However the only non original piece I believe of mine is the shade.

    Does anyone know who or how I can connect with someone where I might be able to get another shade for my (Gone with the Wind) lamp like fhrjr2 lamp on the left of her picture. Thank you.
