Glass / Large uranium blue swirl teardrop glass shade ID
« Last post by Buzz on Today at 12:21:50 AM »
Hi everyone,
I recently inherited a glass lamp which I have loved ever since I was young.  This was my Grandparents, and I know they had it since at least the early 1970s.  I don't know much about it other than it's uranium glass and it appears that it was once a ceiling fixture.  My grandparents always had it as a desk lamp with a blue light bulb in it so I will keep it that way. 

Total measurement of lamp and base is 15"  Glass and base have no manufacturing markings on it, and I believe the base is brass.  Socket is Snapit.  Other than all the info I have given you I have no idea where this came from/who made it/how old it is.  I have no intentions on selling it but I would like to get info on its origins if possible though I know that may be difficult due to no manufacturing markings.  Any insight from you would be very much appreciated.

Thank you!

thanks for the info
 no she didnt miss out the T i have since found out that is what mdina called this design crysal blue
Court Jester seems to be c.1929
The notes from that link say:
'Patented in 1929 by Jerome E. Baum. Has been found with "Dermay Bath Powder" and "Wrigley Quality" paper lablels.(sic) '

Jerome E. Baum seemed to be owner/have interest in Dermay and then retired and sold his interest and became President of the organisation that owned  Parfumerie St. Denis, Inc., New York :

ok, much, much later than my interest then, but still variations on the original designs.
When you said Pamela, I assumed Pamela Weissendorf. :)

"Marble", (a later variation of Tiger) still contains dull browns, while this looks, as I said like Crystal Blue Stripe colours and trailing, just not in vertical stripes.

Now I know later stuff got sent to Greece, thanks.
Did Pamela miss out the t of crystal?  :)

I thought this would be easy to identify but after much searching I only found this one on row 100 of Pamela's unknown section.

It is 26cm. overall diameter, 8cm. high. I'll keep looking but was wondering if anyone knows the maker.
