    I’m looking for info on Salexe Inc. They made lamps in the 1950’s and had a company address listed in a 1957 San Francisco phone directory. I have a table lamp made by them but cannot find any info on the company on the internet. Can you help?

    trying to identify the artist/mfr mark on my late 20s-1930 glass pendant lamp. tiffany-style in orange and amber. there is a rounded [looks like a half marble] piece of glass that has a mark inside…i wish i could post a pic. it’s one continuous line-look shape: small center box with a box at each of the 4 corners of the central one.

    ideas?

    Looking for info on old lamp with a F stamped on light key. I believe it is some type of fairy lamp. Looks like shade is hand hammered tin and base possibly brass.

    I have a beautiful lamp. Under the felt it reads CORMELL, CORNELL, OR CORWELL. (Where the M,N, or W is has a little crack so its hard to tell) Then a space and MC. THE NUMBER IS 1157. With very little letters stamped into it. I can make out Italy but thats it. So after researching it, I figured MC is for Marche or Macerata. The number I figure is the model number, but the the name I cant find. Do you have an idea?

    I have an antique lamp from my grandmother and want to know more about it. It’s a solid brass table lamp with one glass ball right below the socket. A solid glass ball clear with bubbles in the glass. In a pattern the bubbles are in the glass. The only writing I could find is Goodwin specialties 250w 250v UL now I found that. That is the pull cord socket but as for the lamp it’s self there is nothing on it to determine anything can you help

      Yours is similar to mine, it is a L&L WMC lamp (Loevsky & Loevsky, white metal castings co.)
      from Carlstadt NJ 1937-early 70’s…your model number is right behind mine so yours is one of the early 60’s models because in the beginning the makers mark only had L&L and #### , and later on, the makers mark changed to L&L WMC ####. The bulk of these are from the 60’s with some being from 70-71 and then the company filed for bankruptcy i believe. Yours should be from 1962-63 range…based on your model number.
      I’m an antique collector… Yours is called Hollywood Baroque 🙂

    Have brass pendant hall lamp stamped M & H. Every part is stamped 1919 or 1921. Each of the 4 sides has a unicorn in center surrounded by grape/vines. The bottom ornament has a dragon head dingle. The top has 4 arms that end in small castle that attaches to ceiling part. It came from a Maher designed house in Kenilworth, Illinois. That house was built ca. 1890s-1900.

    We found a pair of what look like legs. They remind us of the legs on a treadall sewing machine. The legs have the following on them “City Art Metal Lamp Co”. I can not find any information on it. Can you offer any suggestions?
