    This is another lamp I just bought. Was wondering about the maker of these lamps. Very very old. The only marking on it is near the sockets and says Benjamin 250w. I have no idea what that means. It appears to be all original but needs a new cord. The cord is cloth and the plug looks kind of scary, I dont really trust it. But it worked when I plugged it in. Nothing blew up or caught on fire. Lol. Any info would be very much appreciated. Thanks, Anna.

      Hi Anna - If you do a search for Benjamin lamp socket, I believe you will find some useful information. Good luck!

      Benjamin made lamp parts, but not whole lamps. Many of these "Arts and Crafts" style lamps were made by lamp companies, but quite a few were made by High School students in shop class. Some of them are very good and sought after by collectors. Yours is nice and I would say worth in the area of $250.00-350.00
      Thank you for sharing

      I collect these wood lamps. Most of the ones that survive today were built by the W.B Brown Company in Bluffton, Indiana -- which operated from about 1905 to 1923. Some are marked with that name but many are not. A digital 500-page catalog from that company has been reproduced and is still available on eBay I believe. I am not sure if this is a Brown lamp or not. I will try to go through the Brown catalog and see if this lamp is pictured. Another company that made beautiful wood lamps was the Daisy Lamp Company in Fairbeault, Minnesota
