A Variety of Lamps

VINTAGE?:  At the suggestion of Jerry Curtis who supplied this specimen, we label the lamp with a name which could be changed, provided someone can properly identify the design. Having no recognizable markings, Jerry thinks that perhaps the mark on the control tab may lead to the manufacturer of this curious oil lamp. (3 1/8” high to top of glass screw top, 4 ¼” base diameter, 4 ½” top diameter, girth measurement through finger loop, 14”, 24-rayed star on bottom, 6 bunches grapes around girth, 3 bunches grapes have 2 leaves, 3 bunches grapes have only 1 leaf, 6 leaves with tendrils directly over the grapes around the top, 3 piece mold with finger loop affixed over one of the mold lines.) Have any of our viewers seen another example like this? We would love to hear from you!

PEACOCK Lamp Bases/Vases:  These are iridized inside. Outer surface is clear glass. The late Bill Carroll of Los Angeles once placed an Efferdent tablet and water inside a red one to clean out some visible residue and much to his chagrin, discovered next morning that all the paint had soaked loose! Reportedly, these Peacock pieces were produced by Hocking Glass Co. in Lancaster, Ohio. A lamp with the original factory sticker has been found to authenticate the manufacturer.

Dean & Diane Fry – 9/10

Do not fret because of evildoers, nor be envious of the workers of iniquity.
For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.
Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.
Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass.
He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your justice as the noonday.
Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him; do not fret because of him who prospers in his way,
Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass. Cease from anger,
and forsake wrath; do not fret—it only causes harm.
For evildoers shall be cut off; but those who wait on the Lord, they shall inherit the earth.
For yet a little while and the wicked shall be no more; indeed,
you will look carefully for his place, but it shall be no more.
But the meek shall inherit the earth, and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
