    This is a gorgeous greenish yellow Victorian style lamp with daisies. It is done in yellow, orange, green and blue colors. The height is about 30" and the width is about 14". It has a clear glass chimney, and brass, antiqued parts. The very top globe is ruffled. The bottom is a pare shape. It lights on top and has a nightlight bottom. Only lit the top because I need to change the bottom bulb and because of the weight, I need help doing it. Got lucky enough to find this at a flea market for $40. and I asked the woman if I could give her $35 as that was all I had left on me. She obviously accepted. The light matches my bedroom perfectly as it is a dark cherry from the 50's and looks a bit Victorian also. Do not know date or manufacturer. Anybody care to guess? Thanks for stopping in!

      My best guess is that it is a hand painted Victorian oil lamp that has been converted to electricity
      Google Victorian oil lamp converted to electricity, I think you will see what I mean. Pretty lamp

      these were popular items at big box stores c1960s-80s. The details of the metal and top shade shape are same as the one I have posted here:

      The best way to tell if you have a repro or original is to look at the cord of the lamp. Early cords are a lot thinner and aren't marked ac/dc

      Thank you to lizzyebw, Tallcakes and robin56. I forgot about that little detail, the cord is thin, does not say ACDC, but it does say EIW on the plug. The lamp is also hand painted.

      Circa 1960s-1980s is when these were most popular. Contrary to popular belief, most non-Rayo non-Aladdin 'Victorian" "oil lamps" "converted to electricity" are neither Victorian nor converted and never held oil.
      "Antiqued", as you say, is also a good give-away. Typically hand-painted or decaled, from Hong Kong.
      Cords are often replaced from the early conversions, though. But in most cases they're converted centre-draft lamps like Rayo and Aladdin, and some of those were made that way in the 1920s.
