    This was a GW find today. The glass part of the lamp is 7" high and the base is 4.5" in diameter. It weighs 1 lb and 11 ounces. It appears that the socket has been replaced and maybe the cord, too. The pinwheel design is a pretty iconic American design. Guessing, based on its small size, it is a boudoir lamp.

    I tried to take it apart but could not break the nuts loose. I didn't try too hard for fear of breaking it. I did wash it in a sink full of soapy water so going to let it sit for a few days to completely dry out before testing it to see if it lights. It think that I paid about $3 for it.

    I was wondering if anyone knows who made the glass part of the lamp?
