These blown "ART GLASS" and brass lamps have been in my family for many, many years. I used to stare at them going to sleep when I visited my Great Auntie in Glendale for sleepovers... some 50 years ago. They were OLD back then!
The glass is solid and heavy, and is a "paperweight" style of blown glass. Because I loved them, they came to me when Auntie died. I took them apart and polished, rewired and added new shades and have been using them ever since. The brass is solid, and polishes nicely, but desperately needs to be polished again. You can see a bright spot on the lower brass section where I "spot" polished today. It takes a lot of work... I think I can put my Dremmel to work here!
There are no markings, or indications of where or when these lamps were made and I have always been curious to find out more about them.
I'm hoping someone out there can tell me about my treasured lamps?
