    We always called this Aunt Daphene's Tiffany lamp. She came with my great grandfather from Salonica Greece through the port of New York and lived in Lowell Mass in 1910-1919. My grandparents later owned it and passed it to my parents. I would love to know more about it as I have never seen one even similar until I found one on this website with a very similar shade.

    It has a very heavy 9 inch lead base with felt on the bottom. I have not checked under the felt for markings. Shade is 17 inches wide. Lamp is 24 inches tall. In great shape, the fixtures work fine with pull chain. Nothing has been replaced on it. It is a very special piece to me whether its value is high or not. Any info is welcome!

      These are easy to find on the net as there are pages and pages of them. I have seen a lot more decorative ones from the 1920's on the internet than this one. They all look rather similar to the metalwork in your shade.

      My lamp is exactly the same as the one above in the photo. The shade and the base are identical.

      Always interested to know more about the lamps past so welcome all input.

      My lamp is in storage right now. Our home was struck by lightning last April and luckily it survived. Hopefully, I'll get it back in June. I'll share more about it then. I've been researching tonight and found a library that has the catalog. Unfortunately, of course, now it is closed through April. I found the address: Empire Lamp & Brass Mfg. Co., 663 W. Washington St., Chicago, Ill. Too bad it is long gone!
