I'm wondering if anyone can tell me about this lamp. I don't believe it's an authentic Handel Water Lily lamp. My mother said she bought it new sometime between 1955 and 1960, long after the Handel company closed. Also, I've noticed a couple differences in the characteristics of the Handel lamps, most notably the light socket and lack of classic Handel fluting on the base.
The underside is stamped BCL. I would love to know what company made it and whether or not this was intended to be a reproduction of the Handel slag lamps. Anything, really.
