wow, not very familiar with the internet but just noticed you sent that inquiry back in 2009. As you can see I have been trying to find out about this piece for sometime now. Back in 2009, I just gave up because no one wanted to help me find out about it. Now I have 2 ladies on here that have "been biten" so to speak. Finally, I might actually sell it lol.
If you can find the thread for this piece on here, it will explain why I haven't come up with a price. At this point I am inclined to think we will be asking somewhere in the 5 figures. We are still waiting to hear back from some experts on the revolutionary war it is believed to have been made during. Thanks for asking.
Hi: My husband found your website by Googling "Paul Harmon lamp." We were delighted because we just bought one exactly like yours at an auction here in VA. Do you have any idea of the age or value of this beautiful lamp? Thanks and we look forward to hearing from you. Rae Arthur
EJ, the bottom signature reads ELWELL. My husband dug it up in his backyard about 44 years ago near Fort Montgomery, NY. We have been researching it for around 3 years now and have had a lady in the NY museum tell us by it's form it was from the early 19th century. Somewhere around lat 1800's. We have researched the name ELWELL and it appears there were 3 ELWELL families living in the area in the late 1700's. We do have the ELWELL documentation. Hope this answers any questions you may have.
EJ, My interest are many. I spent many years teaching karate or martial arts as some refer to it. I love to challenge myself to do things that some people refused to do because they lack the patience to learn.
You are most welcome to the site and hope that you will join in researching items of interest, even wrestling memobelia, etc.
Educate us on the the things that interest you by posting antique related items or etc.
EJ, welcome to the I antique online site, and welcome to the antique tool group, post a pic or 2, make some comments, or just enjoy, welcome to a new bigger family.
