Dan replied to Ashley Lamere's discussion Any idea about these lamps? in the group Lighting Antique and Vintage
"Post a picture of the socket.  You can tell the age, country of origin and many times maker by the socket.  Make sure to show details of the inside, any markings on it etc.   Also show the base of the lamp.  Is it spelter, or…"

Dan commented on Thomas Powers's group Lighting Antique and Vintage
"I think you are right about the box being a part of the lamp, but my knowledge of 1920's electrical parts is limited, so I still have hope. I can have a box welded, but I'd like to find something original first.  Any one know of…"

Handel Lamp?

I rescued this lamp in 1968  from a house in Milwaukee that was to be demolishedThe  wrecking crew had tossed in a pile with other lamps.  I was 17 at the time and thought it would look cool in my bedroom.Recently, some one told me it was a Handel.  It is finely  made of bronze or copper, riveted and soldered together.  The glass is original and has been called chipped or cracked ice.  The canopy matches and is the one found with the lamp.Over the years I've searched every publication on…See More
