Vintage Lamps

It is without question that the most glamorous lamps are vintage. They just didn’t know how to make ’em cheap back then. Fortunately, if you held on to your great-grandmother’s Tiffany lamp, you are holding on to quite the valuable piece now.

    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?

    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 🙂

      I just noticed your question over a year later in doing some research myself. There was a company called “Greene and Greene” with an “e” at the end. Extremely famous, they operated out of the Pasadena area and were architects of the Arts & Crafts Movement known for their intricate woodwork and innovative bungalow designs. Like Frank Lloyd Wright, they expanded the architect’s role to include designing not only the home but the furnishings such as furniture, rugs, art glass and lighting fixtures. If you do indeed possess a Greene and Greene lamp (and not some imitator trying to trade on the name by calling themselves Green and Green and operating out of California) you have a very valuable object indeed although half a million seems a bit high. If interested check out Google on “The Gamble House”; their most famous commission. Hope you’ve hit it big; good luck.

    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.

    I need some help on identifying a generic name for a type of lamp that has a metal shade and when activated by a light underneath spins in a circular motion creating a silhouette on the ceiling of a room. My grandmother lived in Pennsylvania near State College. I believe the lamp was probably made in the Pa area but not for sure. I am guessing the lamp with the shade was from the 1900’s to 1950’s era. Thanks so much.

    I have a what I think is a vintage lamp, might be classified as a “Gone With the Wind” lamp, with the markings “T.L. Corp” on stamped on the bottom. I tried to up load a picture, but could not. It has a hand painted bottom that mirrors an oil tank BUT isn’t and never was.

    Thought you might know the company.

    Need help identifying a pair of lamps. They are large hanging lamps with 5 candle-lights each. They are made of wrought iron and cast aluminum. They are a bit gothic in looks. Shaped like a barrel, with a Mayflower ship as the focal point of each side. Inside the only marking is MAYFLOWER 90. They came out of a bar/restaurant in Signal Hill California.

    EF & EF Industries, Chicago. Light-up globe table lamps of the 70’s. Originally not valuable; however, since the value goes up every year, it has reached about $90 per each lamp. The pineapple version, top of the line, is the most valuable, currently about $190 apiece.

    I have a torchiere floor lamp made by Radiant New York. I can not find any info, other than the company was purchased by Westinghouse. Hallmark is the word Radiant in side of a diamond shape with NewYork under it. Seems to be brass, with a key style switch, globe is missing. Could it be old or worth anything. It works great.
