Found this lamp and I can not find anything out about it. Does anyone have a suggestion as to what it is called? Or where I can find out some info on it?

    I believe it's called a student lamp, just Google student lamp.

    Thanks Michael. I will try that and see if I can find out the maker and year.

    i agree with officialfuel -- they still make this design -- your lamp appears to be an antique -- perhaps late 1800s based on the wiring and shade i see in the pic

    Thanks Epson233,

    I done a search based on what Fuel said an came up with lots of designs, but non exact. I wish it had a name on it somewhere. The only name I have came across was on the switch to turn on/off an it said "levitch". I never found anything comparable.
    The cord appears to be wrapped in a cloth substance, shade appears to be a painted tin. Lamp itself appears brass. I would like to find name of maker to also find the value, if any.
    Thanks again for everyone's reply. They have been very helpful.
