Thrift-store find. A Pittsburgh Lamp, Brass, & Glass Co. lamp with glass body and 'aged bronze' finish (though the top is a bit overly aged with corrosion, LOL).
P. L. B. & Co. was around from 1901 to 1926, so this lamp has some decent age. I assume the thrift-store cut the cord, which is sad as I really wanted the plug. Don't throw away the antique plugs! There is nothing unsafe about them (for table lamp use, not appliances) if not corroded or otherwise damaged.
I couldn't find this one in a catalog, so I cannot be more specific other than circa late 1910s to mid 1920s.
