Have you ever seen another pair of vase's made into lamps and does the collectibility decrease or increase with the modification.  Their really handsome lamps.

Webb Corbett Agate Flambe I believe.  Although a better photograph of the base would be helpful.

As far as I can see from the old WMF catalogues, Ikora lamps have always been designed with chromed caps (and no additional bases), and there doesn't seem to be any cross-over between lamps and vases (some factories would use the same moulds for both).

That makes sense.  When I first started looking at WMF lamps, all had metal base's and top's.  Didn't see one with a wood base.  That made me think they might be converted.  Thanks for the confirmation and info.  Much appreciated.

The conversion would probably have been carried out by an individual, there are professional glass restorers who could do this sort of work, cutting the bottom off, or perhaps an amatuer with the right sort of equipment could have done it.
I agree completely with Pinkspoons, these are vases which have been converted.

I'm afraid we don't tend to discuss "values" here, they're far too subjective.

"Ikora" is the name of the range of glass made by the WMF factory. It's a wide range, with lots of different colourways.
But I doubt very much the conversion in to lamps was done there. They made lamps to be lamps.

Thanks for your info.  I thought of that.  Where they made in the Ikora factory?  The entire bottom is cut out.  Not just a drill hole for the wire.  That kind of made me think they were factory made????   thx, Bill

I thought of that, but who would have made them into lamps and how would they have cut the bottom out?  The entire bottom is cut out, not just a drill hole for the wire?
