McDonald Sport Lamps of Old Greenwich, CT???
Anyone ever heard of that lamp maker? I can't post a picture, but I have a table lamp which is of brass I think, on an oval wood base. The lamp body (not shade) in brass is fashioned to look like the scaffolding, metal rope and pulleys you'd use to hoist up two deep sea fish for measuring as if in a fishing contest, one is a heavy brass swordfish the other a tuna, each about 4 or 5 inches long. I got it at an antique store with a cheapie black paper shade and a finial of an Asian dolphin, so I know it was not as original.
So this chap must have made "sports lamps"!
Back of the wood base is a small plaque with what looks like cursive writing etched into it that looks like
DUMcDonald Sportslamps, Old Greenwich, CT, #192
Not sure on the DUMc, could be DllMcDonald...It is in hand written script etching. Anyone ever heard? I could find nothing on internet searches....Thanks!
