    This is a large lamp and the font is copper. there are dragons on the sides in some type of dark metal. It has the rayo oil filler cap. I have tried to find one like this on the net but no luck. I would appreciate any info that anyone has, and a best guesstimate as to value.Thanks!

      Hi - it's Rayo, not Rayco. I found a similar one. Your lamp may not be listed on the web.

      Here's some history about Rayo:

      Here it is with a hurricane shade! GORGEOUS! Dragons or Griffons...

      Yeah - those are definitely Griffons, not dragons. Not too clear in the above photo,the Ebay listing shows them beautifully. NICE lamp!

      Here's another. And I spelled them wrong - it's Griffins, not griffons!!

      The lamp is actually a Bradley Hubbard, the burner is Rayo.Check THIS one out. MY GOD these are gorgeous!! Lucky YOU! This one has the original Griffin shade.

      Sorry about the typo. Yes it is Rayo. Thank you all for your enormous help! I will have to search and see if I can find an original shade (good luck with that). Got this beauty at a thrift store :-) I didn't know it was Bradly & Hubbard.

      my griffins are black, do you think they were supposed to be polished?
    9. Celiene Celiene, 5 years ago
      NO! They are cast iron.
    10. Celiene Celiene, 5 years ago
      Your shade looks just perfect.
    11. leforme44, 5 years ago
      well that's the shade that came with it and it is huge!! I really do appreciate all the help I have received here, and once again I thank you so much!
