Dolphin lamp
« on: June 09, 2008, 11:36:49 AM »
If anyone can give me an idea of the works that made it, I'm running out of idea's in my limited experience. I'm trying to find out if there was a lampshade designed for this originally, so I can restore it to its former glory.
thanks
martin

hmmm, that 1's interesting, shame I can't see the shade. My problem is I don't even know what type of shade holder is used.

thanks Anne

nice to think it's worth that much, but realistically I doubt it!

They are worth a good bit. Some prices are more optimistic than others. eBay has made the dolphin fish pieces more accessable, which I am sure has had an impact on their values.

Salviati and Barovier made glass that is like your lamp. I believe that AVeM made similar glass. Looking at your lamp, I would say probably Barovier & Toso. I don't know if these bases were made with any particular shade. Anything that looks good with them would probably work just fine.

Martin, would you mind if I added your photographs to your post. They would be stored on this board itself. Tinypics tend to disappear, sometimes very quickly.
