    The lamp is part of my late mother's estate - no idea as to when it was made or by whom. Looks like dark pink/mauve milk glass globes. Approx 31.5" in height and the middle globe is approx 8" wide.

    Does it look familiar to anyone? I have no idea how to identify or or where to start researching. There are no prevalent stamps or trademarks that I could see.

      I imagine that this was an Oil Banquet Lamp at one time that was electrified. Usually any information would be found on the Thumbwheel (wick raiser wheel). I can only help you in that I found a depiction of a very similar metal base in a copy of a Pitkin & Brooks, Chicago, catalogue of 1892. This company did not manufacture lamps but their main suppliers were Bradley & Hubbard and Edward Miller & Co. RER (BOB)
