      This transfer designs of "Dancing Damsels" was named IRENE by Catherine Thuro in her, "Oil Lamps- The Kerosene Era in N. America" ref. book # 1. It is shown on page 302 in a tall stand lamp form....yours is the smaller finger lamp style. Both your lamp and the one in the reference book are equipped with a Clinched Collar that was patented in 1876. I see a bit of amethyst color in the handle so I would date your lamp later at circa 1895-1915. The author of the reference book does not mention a manufacturer and I have been unable to find anything in my sources. I did find a recent auction result of $220.00 for a tall table model of this lamp. Bob
