  1. Your lamp was made by The Pittsburgh Lamp, Brass & Glass Co. (PLB&G) around 1915.
  2. It looks like it was made by Phoenix Lamp Co. around 1915.
  3. The lamps were manufactured in Findlay Ohio sometime in the late 1890's by Dalzell, Gilmore and Leighton.
  4. It appears to be in the style of Revere or Apollo Studios. Compare to these.
  5. Your lamp was made by Heintz Art Metal. It is sterling on bronze and would have had a mica lined bronze shade to match. NEVER polish it, the value would be greatly reduced. Here are some similar: htt...
  6. The plate on the bottom reminds me of B&H. If you are able to loosen the nut and take the plate off you might see the mark on it. It is for Bradley and Hubbard. But then again, it might be Miller.
  7. Thanks for the love Radegunder, ho2cultcha, sarahoff and Hunter!
  8. Very nice! I have a floor lamp (NOT as nice as yours!) with the same bakelite sockets. I have no idea who made yours, but WOW!
  9. Thank you aghcollect, blunderbuss2, SEAN68, Lisa-lighting and vetraio50!
  10. I'll bet it's smooooooth!
  11. Thanks Dave, but it's not for sale. They come up on eBay for $1,000-2,000 in various colors. Keep an eye out and you will find one!
  12. Thank you Virginia, tom61375, aghcollect and Moonhill!
  13. Glad to help. I hope you can keep it in the family, but if you do decide to sell, don't let it go cheap (unless, of course, you are selling to me). Check out these others: http://www.liveauctioneers....
  14. Your beautiful lamp was made by Wilkinson. You can see it as a table lamp here: And the same hanging hardware here:
  15. Thanks for the info, Phil. I will correct my information. Always happy to learn!
  16. It is a repro of Gerdago. You can see an original here:
  17. Looks like Majestic Z Co. Yes you are right the shades are nick-named spagheti shades and are spun plastic.
  18. Here are some similar, but not in as good condition as yours.
  19. Your student lamp was made by the Standard-Gillett Lighting Co. of 9-11 W. Michigan St., Chicago, Ill. ca. and is featured in their 1910 #30 catalogue (in reprint), but may have been manufactured many...
  20. It seems like the older I get, the less I know. Thank you so much for input.
  21. Look at these.
  22. Thank you Leah, coming from you, I am very humbled! You make me look like an amature. I love your glass!
  23. Thank you Lisa. Sounds like a lot of fun. I have to clear it with my wife, but as far as I am conscerned, you are welcomed to join me any time!
  24. Actually, California Art Tile of Richmond, CA. They are signed, but like you, I thought Batchelder. Aren't they great?
  25. I think Roberts was the best. Look at your fitter. It is rough ground, not smooth. Another indication that it is Durand.
  26. I think it was made by Fenton for the L. G. Wright Company. Probably from the 1970's.
  27. Yes Lisa, I believe you are right! They are probably Durand and very rare in shape and color. Fostoria and Durand were very similar and did not sign their shades, but Fostoria did gold interiors and D...
  28. Hi Lisa, I actually have two of these shades myself. I always assumed they were Pittsburgh, but Jefferson would be a good guess too. I had them on a couple little Handel mantle lamps and they looked g...
  29. The style is neoclassical. Origin is France. It was made in the late 19th century and owned by someone of considerable wealth. I have seen many as table lamps with goats, rams, swans and mermaids. Thi...
  30. It looks like Bradley and Hubbard to me. Look at the top part that holds the sockets. If there is a triangle with a Aladdin style lamp in it, it is B&H.
  31. It's too nice to languish in the attic. You need to find an old floor base for it and use it. Love it.
  32. Thank you Lisa! I like your stuff too. I have been doing this for 20 years and I still get surprised at what I find. I should post more of my findings.
  33. This lamp is on page 200 of Hibel, Hibel and Fontaine's book "The Handel Lamps Book" copyright 1999. The serial number 7463 puts its manufacture in the year 1926. There is a similar one (but I like yo...
  34. Your welcome!
  35. Research Olive Kooken.
  36. What you have is called a Harvard style student lamp. It was originally made to burn liquid fuel like kerosene. The shade is probably Boston & Sandwich Glass Co. or Atterbury & Co. The base is probabl...
  37. I found a Bradley and Hubbard with a very similar base. Check it out at
  38. This looks like a Phoenix lamp base.
  39. Here is one that has a chrome finish.
  40. Your lamp was made by Phoenix Lamp Co. Here is a link to a similar one that sold for $1,500.00. Nice lamp to find in an attic! Thanks for sharing.
  41. Your lamp is what has been called a "banquet" style kerosene lamp. It no doubt had a painted matching shade. If you keep your eye out for it, you might find a replacement, although it would be like fi...
  42. At $10 a great buy! Good for you.
  43. Thank you Lisa and toolate2!
  44. There were many makers of slag lamps. Miller, Pittsburgh, Rainaud, etc. Yours is definitely American made from 1900-1920. If you look at this link, you will see a similar one that sold for $500. http...
  45. Thanks smiata and Moonstonelover21!
  46. Thanks SEAN68!
  47. Your lamp was likely made by J A Whaley. Go to and you can see examples by this maker along with others.
  48. I finally restored this fixture! Take a look and please tell me what you think.
  49. Nice lamp! Looks like Edgar Brandt to me. It would look great with a Daum Nancy or Muller Freres shade.
  50. Great find! I found the same one and gave it to my father as a gift. He loves it. Value is around $250.00 at auction. Also, it is spelled Verdalite and is similar to Amronlite and Emeralite.
