      The turquoise glass is really beautiful

      The name of the maker can sometimes be found on the knob which turns the wick up and down. In some cases is it just marked with the name of the maker of the burner, though. Your lamp appears to be molded glass, not cut glass. Dimensions of the lamp would be great and any marking which appear on the burner would also be helpful in dating it....

      @kwqd thank you! The lamp is 12” tall to the top of the flute, 11” tall to the top of the upper blue glass
      Top blue glass is @5 1/2” at the widest part
      Bottom blue glass is @3 1/2” at the widest part
      On the knob it says “MADE IN HONG KONG”
      Somehow I missed that-does that help with dating it?
      Appreciate your help :)

      Probably dates to the 1970s-1980s when a lot of Hong Kong lamps were imported into the US. I have some of these lamps, too. I have been coming down with a cold the last couple of days and will take a closer look at this when I feel better. I did do a quick look and found this link:
