    I picked up these 3 lamps from Construction Junction (re-used building materials, furniture, lamps, anything recyclable) and the porcelain on all 3 is in remarkable shape, no chips or cracks. George and Martha Washington lamps are some kind of polished brass, and I refurbished all 3 with new lamp parts. The 2 polished brass lamps also had some type of metal (brassy) spacers, about 2.5 " long and 2 " wide which were located above the neck portion and where the harp is situated, and have a brassy key and knurled nut attached to the spacer (See next photo).
    The porcelain rose lamp has the number "32" stamped in ink on the bottom.
    I can't find any information on the rose lamp, and assume it's from 1932?
    I located pictures of the George and Martha lamps (with the original spacer) at an auction site on the web, and they went unsold at their auction. (I may have the same exact ones which were in the auction, but I believe they were from an auction in Virginia, I'm near Pittsburgh)
    I'd appreciate any information on all 3, and if someone knows for sure whether the rose lamp is from 1932. Thanks, Tim

      My mother was a Stanley dealer at one time . I believe your lamp with the flower was a hostess gift for having a Stanley party. If so it's from the 50's.
