Hi, and thank you for asking for me! Unfortunately I do not see an image or a link to one--could you try to attach one, please? Any maker marks (check the light swith, socket, cord end, etc.)...and I NEVER scowl on Friday! <grin> With kind regards,Steve

Hey, that's a NICE slag glass lamp! Looks original--circa 1920's...not a Pairpoint, sorry---but when you get home, check under the globe as well on the supports as they are often marked (very small) in block stampings, not easy to see...and advise if the light socket is bakelite, porcelain, brass or aluminum--all keys to what era it is! With kind regards,Steve
