Customer Question
I found a stiffel...

I found a stiffel table lamp in a second hand shop. it still has the stiffel sticker. (no shade or finial). is there a unique finial for a pre 1962 brass table lamp?

Expert's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

It is 31 1/2 inches tall. 3 way switch with switch on bottom. i believe it is called a candlestick design- about 10 pounds. it has the name chilo engraved on the screw where the finial once was on the harp.
