  1. From the photos of the base and the holes, it looks like bronzed Spelter (white metal) that was widely used in the late 1800's/ early 1900's. If it was a bronze casting, there certainly would have bee...
  2. Showing decorations on a font is not enough for anyone to be able to help you identify your lamp. You can upload up to four pictures on this page. Is your lamp electric or oil? A total view of the lam...

  9. I forgot to add to take a look for their watermark/logo! There was a cut glass chimney that came with this lamp....I don't see it here. Bob
  10. The components for this cut glass lamp should be individually marked....take a close look for the Libbey Glass Company of Toledo, Ohio which could be a Star in a circle or the Libbey name with a Sword...

  20. Thank you philmac51 for the love. RER

  22. Thank you artfoot for your comments and love and thank you IronLace, fortapache, vetraio50, mikelv85, inky, IanBrighton and surfdub66 for the loves. RER
  23. I also agree but there are so many interpretations of characteristics out there that unless new catalogs are found, we'll be assuming and guessing forever. Bob
  24. Could he be this Irish Engineer? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Dargan
  25. Thank you charcoal for the links......it's quite possible that these candy dishes had labels at one time. After over 80 years, labels are/become rare. Thank you blunderbuss2, surfdub66, aura, Caper...
  26. Thanks welzebub! The real similarity was the spatter treatment ie..; from top of lid radiating down and from the under-base radiating to the cup sides. The yellow tango colour is much lighter than th...
  27. Nice to compare!
  28. Nice to see it again!
  29. Might as well show off mine too! lol

  37. Thanks welzebub! ....Kralik it is! BOB
  38. Thanks vetraio50! I couldn't find it because it was listed in the UK listings but Peggy sent me a link. I see that this one has the Czechoslovakia semi-circular mark and they identify it as Welz. Shou...
  39. Thank you inky and mikelv85 for the loves! RER
  40. There's a "spring into action" at the top. Actually it's just a guess! Lol
  41. Thank you sklo42 and IronLace for the comments and loves. Bob
  42. Yes, Peggy ...there is a sealed drain-like hole in the cup that allows the bracket feet to attach directly to the underbelly. I like how the feet extend to the tiptoes to hold the cup. Thank you for t...
  43. Yes Phil! I forgot to mention Peggy@ sklo42....she has many beautiful examples of tall rocket-footed vases in many colours and has inspired many to start collecting these unique items. Thank you and i...
  44. Great Minds think alike Phil! Thank you for the comments and love. Thank you inky...yes, the shape is quite unusual. Thank you welzebub, vetraio50, aura and artfoot for the love. RER(BOB)
  45. Some beetles became wise to these traps and developed wings that allowed them to fly directly to the centre and gobble up the sweet nectar then fly off to the next free meal?
  46. Golden Anniversary since it's gold coloured so it would date it 1987.....possibly!
  47. The base is indeed by B & H but I have not been able to find the font in my B & H catalogs. RER

  50. Not saying that this is what I think it is but every time I look at it, it reminds me of those tripod head rests that bedouins sleep on when travelling in their caravans through the desert. They are u...
