I bought this lamp in a garage sale, after researching a little, I found that it could belong to the Gone with the wind lamps. but it has not any sign, except for the legend Made in U.S. of America on the knob.

It is electrical, and for any reason, I assume that the upper part is not the original, but the roses in the lower are great!

    It certainly is the base for a Banquet Lamp or "Parlor Lamp"that still has original Oil Lamp parts like the thumbwheel, the filler cap, part of the gallery' and the Font should pull out of the base unless it's tied down by the cord that has been drilled through the font and font holder. It would have had a Burner where the lamp light is now fixed and a shade holder that would have held a matching flowered shade. The gallery would have held a similar tall glass chimney. Although they are called "Gone With The Wind" lamps, they were made post civil war era...more like into the late 1880's till the early 20th Century. Companies like Fostoria Glass Co., Consolidated Glass, Mt. Washington Glass Co., Phoenix Glass Co. and many other U.S. Companies made similar lamps.
    Lamp dealers would know where you could get a shade holder and where you could have a matching shade painted with the same flower design & color. It would be a Fantastic addition to this stunning lamp. RER (LOUMANAL)
