    Look up Gilbert Rohde....He was one of the pioneers of American modern designs. He used a lot of metals and his designs for the most part are stunning.

    If this is actually one his lamps.....well it worth pretty penny.

    Either way it's a great lamp

    The "Gilbert" name was on the cord, not on the lamp. Perhaps the name of the company who made the cord? No markings on the lamp at all :( I looked at his stuff and I do not think this is his. Though, thank you for the information!
