Is this a Walther Lamp base?

(1/6) > >>

tigerchips:
Im not sure what this is but I've seen similar glass described on ebay as Walther glass.

I can imagine it being a beautiful lamp when the original shade is present.

Is it worth selling if it is damaged and with no shade :?:

here's the picture.

I have a large pressed glass Art deco sailing ship on Ebay. It's the same colour as the lamp base and it's frosted too.

I've been buying and selling antique's and collectables for 5 years now and i've never seen one like it before.

Any help would be much appreciated.  :)

Hi Tigerchips

I have had a look through various Walther catalogues from 1928 to 1965 and neither the lampbase nor the sailing ship appears in them at all. Walther did make a couple of ships but these were galleons and not like yours  

Regarding your items on Ebay ... the tray most certainly is as you ascribe but again neither the candlesticks nor the ring tray appears in these catalogues. Can you advise why you think the c/sticks and pin tray are Walther.

I presumed the candlesticks were Walther because two different "eBay Sellers" described them as such. Their candlesticks are identical to mine but are different in colour (light Pink, light Blue).  The ring holder is also described by another eBay seller as Walther (it is green like mine).

I haven't had any emails to say that they aren't Walther.  :?

Perhaps somebody out there might know :?:  :)

Hi

Unfortunately a number of sellers on Ebay will add any name they think might  help sell their item. Misattribution is pretty rife with some bordering on the rediculous.... It becomes a bit of a vicious circle where one person gives something a name and then someone else picks it up and propogates it further... in some respects in the abscence of any other corroborating information this is what you have done as well... and with all due respect why would you question it to be otherwise.
Regarding not receiving emails refuting the attribution ...well not many people appear to bother... but again we are back to the sellers who do nothing to correct their listings even after having been given direct proof that their listing is incorrect.... I know because I have advised some sellers only to see it totally ignored.  
The catalogues I have are comprehensive for the period and I can only repeat that the items pointed out to you are not contained within those publications....... not 100% proof.... but not far off.... Without wishing to sound pompous I am the someone out there who might know because I have a very particular interest in Walther of this period.... but I'm not infallible either.
