The information from the underside of the lamp is: EM&C 776 W. There is a sticker on the base that reads ‘Refinished by Electro-Lab, Somerdale, NJ Nov. 1948. The globe is not original to the lamp. I wrote the dimensions of the one photo. The overall height is 23”. The base is weighted and measures 6.5”. And the globe base measures 10” in diameter. The electrical should be rewired.
This lamp was converted from oil to electric around 1940 by my grandfather.
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
The later wiring devalues this lamp; if it were in its original condition, it would be worth $150-250
