    Just received this lamp. No shade and no marks that i can find. Any guesses or suggestions on period and maker or the kind of shade it deserves?
    Two different metals, neither holds magnet, leaves appear hand "appliqued" - height extends. I am super curious. I really like it. Plug and bulb holders appear to be replcements 1950s style- all else original. Felt bottom looks replaced. Would maker mark be underneath? Resisting urge to clean

    I apologize for the sideways images :-)

      I love old lamps. There was a family-run lighting store in San Diego that I brought my lamps into and asked for their opinion. After awhile I started buying lampshades in thrift stores $1 at a time...that stopped pretty quickly. :-) I guess I would suggest that you ask the lighting experts.

      I agree! Its the stories that make each item a real treasure.My Aunt Ranny was my mentor, beginning ages ago focusing on mostly glassware. Thats expanded over the years. She encouraged each of us to begin with a different color or pattern of glassware. I am new here. Finding more time for curiosity and investigation. What a lovely community of like minded souls.

      I will try my hand at inquiring at local shops. What is your opinion on a suitable shade shape or style that would be suitable? Happy to virtually meet you Valentino97!

      Hi Taisce - and happy to virtually meet you too! How tall is this? Where are you going to use it? Do you have a sense of humour?
    7. Taisce Taisce, 5 years ago
      Its about 30 inches tall, extends to 35+\- - not sure where yet. Probably living room.
      yes, i have a sense of humor, but not clever or witty.

      okay....in the living room, focal, tall, humour but not tacky (thanks, because I often tend to the tacky) It is a tall lamp by the way already. I would suggest that you use it as a focal item on the floor or on a low table to bring the height up even more balanced with your furniture. Show off the beautiful metal - use a simple shade. It could be a very dramatic color or a simple metal mesh or rice paper. Until you position it in your room - it's hard to say what the shade should be.
