    Emerald Green Lamp and Shade. With a flip top style burner. Bought for $10 from a lady on FB Garage sale site. She said it was her great great grandmothers. The shade is broke between the lower and upper part and i didnt notice it till i was washing it. I seriously thought i broke it but saw someone used a glue that was black or turned black over the years. I was picking it off not knowing it was holding the 2 pieces together. They fit so well together its hard to see the break even when you know its there. Does anyone know how old this could be? Its one of my favorites. I thought i had some more pictures of the burner and collar area but cant find them. I took it to my mothers for safe keeping so my cats dont knock it on the floor. So if i need more pictures i can get them but might be a couple days.

      Clear pictures of the lamp in day-light would help. Particularly, the burner and knob.

      photos are too dark to make out any details. looks similar 1930s-50s lamps; the quilted diamond shades are readily available today.

      Agree. It looks like a Plume & Atwood by Risdon Manufacturing from the 1960s, but need better images of the base of the lamp, burner and burner knob to be sure. There may be writing on the burner knob.

      I love the flutter of warm light it gives the room. Very beautiful.
