      Did you try googling "Phil Mar Corporation"? That's the maker of the lamp.

      http://www.tvlamps.net/phil-mar_lamps.html

      "Phil-Mar
      The Phil-Mar Corporation of Cleveland, Ohio was one of the major players in the TV lamp market, producing them in a tremendous variety of styles. In the early '40s they manufactured fiberglass products for the war effort, but 1946 saw all their attention focus on production of lamps and their "Glastron" lampshades. They soon purchased Royal Hickman Industries, a company Hickman formed following his 1944 departure from Haeger Potteries, renaming it Ceramic Arts, Inc. Frank Petty had worked with Hickman at Haeger and followed him to Hickman Industries, but opted to remain with Phil-Mar after the sale. Petty was well acquainted with the glazes and designs used by Hickman at Haeger Potteries, which is why there's such confusion today...is it Haeger or Phil-Mar? The products can be very similar. Today many Phil-Mar products are unattributed (or thought to be by Haeger), as their foil labels are no longer present."

      There does not seem to be a photo of your particular lamp on the web.

      Thank you...! I did search on that but as you noted, couldn't find "that" lamp. Interesting
