I bought these art deco lamps several years ago and they sit rather alone amidst a lot of projects. I would want to rebuild them and make them at least 6 foot 5 inches which I like my lamps to be in size, but have not altered them yet. In one the top is quite loose and my hands are rather large and more arthritic now so harder to tighten it up. Otherwise in good condition but need to be loved once again... from a Midwestern American auction !~ It is hard also to get new rods here that I can twist on a base to add the height.
The first one of these lamps I bought was real brass and the second one was bought by a good friend at work for me when I missed my auction that night, and she went, so I found out. I came home that night to find her and her husband waiting for me, which worked out well. That one was more a copper finish, though they matched closely. Those were different, nicer and bought in Canada.
To note, the inside of the black bulb holder would be painted blue inside and the inner bottom flared cone was painted pink inside to reflect those colours on the cones. None of the painted insides could be seen.
