I acquired this beautiful parlor hanging lamp from an old home my husband and i bought to flip. The house itself dates back to 1920's. After the owner passed, we bought it. I believe the last updating she did was the 50's or 70's. This was hanging in the entry of the house. An antique dealer downtown told me to be sure and take the fixture for myself because he thought it was valuable, that he remembers it in the house back when we was a young boy. I can not find any information about it. I found a couple listings on various auction sites but not much info. What style is it? year? value? If it's a reproduction, how would i go about the value then? Thanks for any information you can provide.

    I found this site looking for a place to help me locate the name and maker of my grandmother's pressed glass goblets. I saw your cranberry glass fixture and it is so beautiful. I have 2 cut to clear cranberry table lamps from the 30's that this would look fabulous with if you wanted to sell it. I don't know the value, just that it would go beautifully with what I have. Please contact me if you determine a price and want to sell. Thanks!

    Wonderful hanging lamp. Did you sell it? I have a 38" high oil table lamp that matches it quite well - late 1800's. Same red globe, hanging crystal (with extra pieces). Did you find out your lamps history?

    If it is an old light fixture it should have a date on it somewhere . Have you looked at the light socket ? I have two antique light fixtures that came out of an old hotel here where I live . They used to be gas light fixtures but had been changed over to electric . The electric light sockets had the date on them and they were over 100 years old . My light fixtures are made of brass . I did have four of them but I sold two to an antique dealer for $275.00 quite a few years ago . One of the light fixtures now hangs in my house . The other one I have yet to do anything with .

    While very nice (especially the ruby glass), it does not date from the Victorian era. They were not capable of producing true ruby glass until the 1920s. Judging from the hardware, fittings, and color, I'd date it no earlier than the 1950s/1960s, and it could even be from the 1970s. This would coincide with the last updating of the house. They most likely added this fixture then.
