I would be interested in finding out the value and history of this lamp. The age also.
I know that the lamp is labeled Gone With the Wind, other than that I know little to nothing about this lamp.

    the globe appears to be a match to that of Consolidated Glass as referenced here: http://clicksnipwow.com/chataboutdg/img4297.search.htm
    These were usually called parlor lamps; the term GWTW is a fairly recent term for this style of lamp.

    I am no expert but, I believe it's a 1940 Gone with the Wind Parlor Lamp, Lion Head. I had seen them selling on Ebay for as little as $29.00 to $99.00. If that is any help.

    Thank you for your response. The most important thing for me is to try to date the lamp. It does have the lion head. I bought this at an antique store and not really for the value, I paid 160$ for the lamp which may be a little steep. I just feel in love with it and had to have it!

    You are welcome. Last time I was on, I forgot to hit the love button. I can see how you fell in love with it. I would have bought it too. Like the saying goes: "Things are only worth, what someone is willing to pay". (or something like that).
    I don't think you did bad at all, it is a beautiful lamp.
