    Found this in Berlin, though it is attributed to an English company.

    This is an American lamp from Faries Mfg Co. Found at a shop sitting outside in the rain. Cleaned waxed and re-wired, no shade with it.

    Pretty cool. What shade do you think it originally had?

    Not included at $2.00, no wonder it was missing.

    Shouldn't be too hard to find something similar.

    Interesting!
    ....are the shades made of glass, paper, other?

    Know the age?

    I would estimate 1920's to late 1930's.

    p.s. Winnipeg, you should check out the WNMF, Philip Glass is playing this year among others.

    This is the more common Czech End Of Day style shade. The lamp my wife bought years ago.

    My friends picked this up for me from the ARC store. The Christmas story one is yellow and the whole leg lights up but they are around 400 dollars. I will take this one someone made for 90% less.

    Dazor model 2004. It's my main listening space lamp now.

    I've got a *LOT* of unusual mid century lighting.

    Everyone has seen the Laurel 'Mushroom lamps' - unsure of who was designing for Laurel in the 60's but they certainly had a flair for lighting. There are some much rarer 'cube' shade versions as well. These had very much shorter bases and came in all the colors of the other Laurel 'shrooms - yellow, green, orange, white, black, polished aluminum, and brass. But the shades were squat cubes - still hand blown in a mold, and still acid etched just like the big mushroom lamps. We have two of these guys - a blue and a black base. Have to be super careful with these shades though if you find one - there are no repros made for these very delicate shades.

    Sorry no close up on this one - right side of the credenza.
