    This is an old lamp I found at a yard sale for $4. There's no maker marks on it anywhere that I could find so I don't know how old it is or who made it.

    It's actually three lights in one. There's a light in the base that glows pleasantly through the plastic (bakelite? cellulous?) trim that turns on/off with a push switch on the base - I'm suspicious that this may have been added later. There's a toggle switch that activates the three chandelier-type lights around the main light, and then then the main torchiere light is a large-socket tri-lamp bulb activated by a twist switch. I'm not certain if the white glass shade is original to this lamp as it looks a bit out of place to me.

    These pictures show it's condition when I first bought it and I have since cleaned it up a bit.

    If anybody knows more information about this lamp - especially a maker and model # - it would be great to know so that I could research it further.
