    ~ Hi CW Gang ~

    I bought this a little while ago. Old Cast iron base Floor lamp with a decor of Slag glass of flowers at the top. I thought it was really neat and had not seen something like this. I did not find any maker marks on it, but going to take another look as I had it rolling on the floor trying to look and did not want to damage the glass. What type of shades do you think it had on it? Anyone seen these before ?? Any info on this is Welcomed

    Thanks for LOOKING // LOVING !!

    ~ Rose ~

      This is beautiful Rose! I'm a sucker for a beautiful floor lamp and I have a few around the house. There's one, designed very similar, though not as intricately detailed as yours is, for sale in a local shop. It too has no shade. It's reasonable priced, but I to wondered what type of shade to use on it.

      I have a cataoge of Eatons I believe that shows the flower part. I collect these even though they are large. Sometimes they are chipped. On your lamp the glass I love, its hard to put a light in them but I have done electical light up about a dozen times.I have the ad and when I get around to it< I can email it to you. The compaony changed its name several times as the years went by, but it was basically Metalcraft Manufacturing Co. Ltd. in Toronto Canada. I know that the states used this flower part also but only on table lamps and the States used a dul grey colour which was highly terrible, but still love them. x0

      The shade is easy to find on the net for these type of lamps which were manufatured in large quantities/ I can email that info to use. They took a 100-3oo wat bi;lb in the main socket. That is very dangerous and adapters are available to buy where you can put a 60 watt or so bulb in. Once screwed in they do not show.

      Sonetimes the flower part has a beautiful opaline effect on the tips of the flower petals. Love that the most on that part.

      The metal used on these was " pot metal " or also called spelter which can be easily broken and they actually created detal very well !

      Incredible that superb lamp survived without any chip!
      I can figure a shade like on this one:

      @jscott0363 - Thanks for the wonderful comment. I hope you went back and got that lamp. I am a sucker for lamps too....LOL.

      @PhilDMorris - Thanks SO MUCH for all the info you gave Phil. Wonderful !! Did you sent that other info? I will go check. I can tell that you really like this lamp!! I looked again for any marks and still not finding anything. You think there would be something - somewhere on it

      @kyratango - Thank you so much for the beautiful comment and the info. Ya, I was looking around too and saw some with that type of shade, then I also saw a couple with a full shade. That is NEAT info, and Thanks so much !!!!

      This particular design in a slag glass flower was made by Houze.

      Houze Slag Lamp / Ashtray Part
      Molded with flowers and leaves. It is 8" tall with a 4-1/4" round base. There is no hole for a cord in the bottom.
      According to John Houze "They were a lamp base and they were used in a smoking stand in the middle of the stem of stand." Here is one of the smoke stands:

      Here’s is a reference link to the flower part in the database for “The Museum of American Glass in West Virginia” >>

      This was made by Electrolite in Canada. As I said before the little table lamps the U.S.A. made were not as nicely made as these Canadian ones. The u.s. people forget that Canadian makers such as Metalcraft made this piece also and theirs had better use of colour. Houze did not make it for Metalcraft or Electrolite. The Canadian people had their own slag glass production line and you can see a lot of examples which the Canadian's only made use of.
