Need Help Identifying this Lamp

Posted by unstrung (My Page) on

So, we've got a pair of old lamps we need to get rid of, and we think they're worth a bit of money but don't know enough about them to be sure. Anyone with lamp knowledge, can you help us identify and figure out what to sell them for?
Many thanks in advance!

1950s ... if it works and IF your area like them, maybe $5-500 .

Depends on who made it. Look for maker's marks and repost back

Call it MCM on craigslist and see what happens.

Spaghetti MCM lamps. Don't see them going for $500 here but maybe $125 - $250 for the pair, depending on condition of the shades & the bases, cleanliness (yes, this counts for a lot) and whether the wiring is okay or not. Not sure where you're asking from but alot depends on whether MCM is popular where you are trying to sell. It's quite popular here but people are cheap here too! :) mfrog
