    These lamps belonged to my paternal grandmother. The smallest one is 6 inches tall, the largest one is 8 inches tall. My father was born in 1909 and said his mother had these lamps for as long as he could remember. Sadly, my dad's memory was no longer very good when he told me that. So if anyone can help me identify them, I would be very happy.

      I know the one on the right is called the Lincoln Drape. It's complete with it's shade and highly sought after. Probably worth about 20. I have one like the one in the center. Not sure who made it. A lot of oil lamp resources have dried up. There is a facebook site called early lighting and lamps you could ask to join it and post your questions on there. Also a facebook page called what is this? That's where I seem to get most of my info now. Beware not all of the people who answer are experts.
