    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.

      Vintage Lamp, before this one they had another Art Nouveau lamp with a bust decaled on it from the same era, but they wanted 45 USD for it. I'm like, nope! I think I got this one down from 15 USD on half-off day.

      Karenoke, it's a bit pink, but I like it. Pink was very popular in the early 1900s, I've noticed.

      Tahiti1, thank you. It sits between the living and dining room on a short, wide knotty pine bar.
