Yellow "mottled" glass lamp base

Yeah, it does look like ours. I wish there was a mark of some sort, my base is missing the bottom cover. I think that's where an ID would have been if there ever was one.

Thanks for finding that link!

Yellow "mottled" glass lamp base

The style of that lamp is different to both of yours which are both prob Czech. The chances are that the glass was made to the design of a lighting manufacturer and the fittings would have been added by the them rather than the glassworks. The technique of decoration was widely used everywhere and the only markings you are likely to find are the base makers or the top fitting makers. It might originally have had a stick on label from the lighting manufacturer.
