Walther & Sohne blue frosted glass nymphen lamp
« on: November 18, 2014, 06:54:03 AM »
I purchased this recently from a local classifieds because I thought it was beautiful. After a lengthy internet investigation I have come to believe this to be a walther & sohne blue frosted glass nymphen lamp most likely to go with dressing set. The only problem is I can't find a lamp available in this line mentioned anywhere. I do beleive the lamp base and shade to be original, the wiring was damaged and partially removed. I would love to hear any additional information regarding walther & sohne lamps especially in the nymphen or mermaid pattern.

Hello and welcome to GMB!

I cannot tell about the shade, I'm afraid, but the base looks equal to Walther # 44037 of 1934 catalogue

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

The base has a notch to accommodate the electric wires so it started life as a lamp.
