      Reglor ones are always marked. Bernie Stein and Rena Stein began Regor of California in 1947. Reglor is the combination of the names Rena and her cousin Gloria. Reglor lamps were frequently produced as a male and female pair. There is much info on the internet. Many companies made copies of Reglor originals and Reglor tried to sue a number of them. There were many companies making these pieces such as Continental Art Pottery.
      Credit for the design inspirations is to be shared with Oscar Vega, a production assistant. Reglor lamps were frequently produced as a male and female pair. The distinctive shades of Reglor lamps were also made in house. Production stopped in 1975 when the Reglor factory in Montebello, California burned. The Reglor company sued several of their imitators when identical piecea started being made by other companies with some success and a lot of failure to keep their designs to themselves.
      Reglor made some iconic shades for their lamps which are at once recognizable and much in demand.

      Some history:

      Bernie Stein and Rena Stein began Regor of California in 1947. Reglor is the combination of the names Rena and her cousin Gloria. Credit for the design inspirations is to be shared with Oscar Vega, a production assistant. Reglor lamps were frequently produced as a male and female pair. The distinctive shades of Reglor lamps were also made in house. Production stopped in 1975 when the Reglor factory in Montebello, California burned.

      From what I read, doesn't look like Reglor archived their lamp set names, could be that information may have been lost in the fire, so people just call them whatever they happen to look like, bullfighter, fish, Egyptians, exception being an identifiable figure like Icarus, etc.

      Cave - I think you should hold on to these. You have some great research from Phil and Katherine.

      Just saw this, thought you might be interested in a Reglor catalog I put online - it was part of the Copyright Office's records of the litigation: http://zvirosen.com/2017/03/23/mazer-and-the-balinese-dancer/
