I got this from a client of mine. I do consignment sales in the north Dallas area. This is what I was told by an antique dealer...
"The 1940's Porcelain Adjustable Dresser/Desk Lamp, by Miller Lamp Co. has an estimated value on the secondary retail market for an of average of $*^*.00 - *^*.00, depending on the condition and where it is for sale at. These will typically sell higher in an Antique Shop or Private sale compared to an auction. If you are thinking of selling, you might want to check your local Antique Shops in the area to see what yours or one like it would sell for or has sold for, then you can decide to sell online or locally. As antiques and collectibles are subject in selling price to different areas across the country..( Larger Metropolitan Areas bring higher prices then Smaller Cities. )"

    Well,the antique dealer was right. Not sure else you are looking for. This style is not popular right now where I live but it is still a solid lamp. I would have to do the same amount of research the dealer told you to do to put a price tag on it. However I don't think it is very valuable. Good Luck!

    It's worth $150-175. I was just wanting more information if possible and a confirmation of what the appraiser told me. Thanks!

    I can totally see that here in Chicago the super craze is Mid Century Modern nothing else will do. I'm sure it'll change in a couple of years. Stuff that was crazy hot in the late 90s you can't give away now. Heywood Wakefield is a good example.
