Sommerso Pink Gold Hanging Lamps? Help ID
« Reply #10 on: October 17, 2005, 10:11:14 PM »
Hello Svazzo, you have been a great help again! I wish I could see a picture of the lamp whole, I have been imaging what the lamp shade would look like and how the base pieces might fit together.  I will keep searching the web and ebay maybe I will run across a picture of one. I really need to sell them but I find myslef thinking of special spots I could put them, like maybe around  my bathtub or turn them into hanging lights and putting them above my eating bar or using them as candle holders, I really don't want to see them go, :(  growing up in the 50's makes it even harder to let go of them.
Thanks for the info.
Pam

Hi Pam,
If I had a photo I would post it for yo uto see.
Maybe I can describe it.... The 2 larger sides of the pieces go together, inverted, one on top of the other (with a glass disk with gold in between). The thin points go on teh bottom and top respectively. Think of it as having a long thin balloon, twisting it at the middle, and pulling each side out. Then put it on a small square base, and put a lamp shade on top, lol.
Thats what it should look like.
I think your idea of having them as hanging lamps is excellent.
If you keep them you should try it out!

Pam, On the other hand you could have two lamp bases. :) Have a look at this and see what you think....  http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=7356461372 looks very close to me.

Javier, what do you think... could they be individual bases instead?

Javier- I put them together like you said and it looks really cool! It sure would make one big lamp, by the time you add the shade and hardware it would really make a bold statement in any room. Thanks for the description.
Anne-Thanks for the link, that  lamp base looks so close to  my lamp bases, wow, they could possibly be two lamps. I can't stop playing with them, my husband thinks I am nuts.

Anne- Thanks so much! :D I was on that site yesterday but I just have a dial up connection and I gave up before I got to the lamps. Wow! They are big lamps, just think they are about 55 years old! I wish I had the full lamp but I guess I was just lucky to find what I have. I hope Javier sees them.
Everybody on this site is so much help, I wish I could answer some of the questions people post but I just don't seem to have enough knowledge. I have been collecting glass for about 20 years and still know so little about glass. Someday I will have an answer to a post.
Thanks Again!
Pam

Aren't they wonderful Pam? I couldn't believe it when I saw them there... it was a link t'other Anne on the Glass board sent me to add to my Glassoholic links library and I couldn't resist a nose around. Glad I did, and delighted they answer your query. :)
