      When photographing lamps, it is very important to see the collars that hold the burners. If it hasn't been replaced, it can offer a time period for your lamps. If the collars are recessed into the glass, they would date after 1910. The second and third lamps are the oldest and the second one dates around that time period. The third lamp is a plain one but it looks like it has a purple tint which suggests it contains Manganese which was commonly used in glass from the 1890 to 1915' period. The second lamp does have a name but I don't have my reference book with me. The 4th lamp looks quite new. RER
