    I found this at a garage sale and paid $15 for it. I thought it was cool but I'm scared to see if it works, I had a fire scare with another vintage lamp so now I wont use any without a new cord. The shade has some chips around the edges but it was the dolphins that hold the shade that I thought was cool. The shade will only fit a certain way and the base is solid marble (I think) with just a small hole for the cord. Any info on this lamp would be great.Thanks and happy hunting!

      Great looking lamp! It's easy enough to replace both the socket and cord. Here's a link to a YouTube video, if you don't know how to do it:

      It's sure worth your time and money to repair it, not to mention the safety aspect.

      Of course, this same info applies to your other vintage lamp. I don't think that replacing the wiring should affect the value ... only improves it.

      Thanks I have so many lamps that need the cord replaced I've started to run out of places to put them all in fact I have at least 10 stored at my mothers LOL! I think I will replace the cord on the dolphin lamp and keep it but the Miller is going on Ebay. I dont have a shade for it and I have seen them go for a decent price figure what ever it goes for I will split with my co-worker who gave it to me.Thanks for comments and happy hunting!

      I like very much Shade , not soo the marble base , but this is my personal oppinion .
      I like to hunting lamp-Shade , electric-Lamp , Chandelier . but i don't use to wired ... some time it' too hard end customer don't pay your time .
      Aniway . Ciao
