    Appears to be brass with marble accent on base its electric. My grandmother said she got them from a funeral home they were placed at each end of the casket. I don't have the globes and it's a pair. One is in perfect condition no scratches or dents no discoloration or stains the other has a small 1 inch dent half way up the shaft otherwise in great shape any idea who manufactured or possibly worth

      A nice socket holder for this one, I know a good deal about the Canadian torchiere lamps like this, but not the U.S. ones. The base looks like it had a piece of Alabaster stone which was common on lamps made in the 1940's to 50's. A lot of these lamps were illustrated and sold by Eatons in Canada and Sears and bought thru their catalogs. Sometimes they named the maker, but sometimes that is the same as other lamp companies because I found they changed the company name a lot esp here in Canada, and the catalog may say the name.

      They are mostly made of spelter and finished in faux brass plating or just painted brass or mainly chrome plated which became the norm. The alabaster piece at bottom was made later by companies such as Houze Glass (slag glass) during the earlier fifties and was particularly used in torchieres and floor ashtrays in the states. The houze glass at base was different styling in Canada so may have been made by the lamp companies also as the colouring or marble striations were made by adding colour while pouring the glass and came out looking like marble.

      Did you ever get new globes? I'd imagine they had milk glass ones originally? Don't quote me on that. If that is the case reproductions are relatively easy to get a hold of.
