Re: WW I Snead Victory Lamp- Morgan Explosion

gr-fitters.jpg No one has actually seen a parchment Snead shade or even a damaged wire frame from such a shade. It is unknown if the shade's frame had a center hole with supporting spokes radiating outward to the upper shade support loop ( a spider fitter). If the parchment shade was made with a ce...

Re: WW I Snead Victory Lamp- Morgan Explosion

The Lamp Shade It appears that there were ultimately two types of lamp shades offered. The first lamp shade type featured a metal doughboy helmet. Quite likely this was the shade provided with the first lamps made available. The second one had an open top and was composed of Strathmore Vellum Parch...

Re: M88/05/34 ?

U tube deleted My Gew 88 uses the inblock clip so I guess it's not a GEW 88/05, just a Gew 88, no Turk markings. And it has the open hole on the bottom. Not sure if it is S marked. I do not think its been out in the last 10 years- forgot I had one. As per suggested, due to incorrect info it was dele...

Here is photo of an original notice a cloth wrapped parallel cord, not the twisted like cord that was found on my double socket lamp and the bakelite plug. Specifications on a single socket lamp are " 6 feet of No. 18 bronze colored parallel silk cord" that is what you see on this found in the trash...

Re: WW I Snead Victory Lamp- Morgan Explosion

If you are going to the trouble to rewire your antique lamp- use the cord & plug correct for the lamp' s time period. For a Snead this is a cloth wrapped twisted cord and/or a cloth wrapped parallel cord and non polarized plug. Shown below are correct half moon, hard rubber or bakelite plugs. For re...

Re: M88/05/34 ?

You fail to indicate if it is Turk marked or still all intact with matching numbers and no Turkish markings. Or if it has an import mark or not.

Re: WW I Snead Victory Lamp- Morgan Explosion

Here is a vintage 1920s screw on lamp harp. I had to buy a beat lamp just for this part. A wee bit too much patina, but the lamp was found in a barn. Notice the low, round, brass finial and the shade washer. Also notice the upper screw top piece for the finial is welded and does not turn like 1930s-...

Re: WW I Snead Victory Lamp- Morgan Explosion

I can not find the reproduction of a vintage 1920s, Screw on harp. What they have as a replacement is what parts suppliers call a" harp saddle adapter" that fits onto the socket. But you then have to also buy a harp loop, and hold down nut. So your best bet is to attempt to find a vintage original s...

Re: WW I Snead Victory Lamp- Morgan Explosion

here is my Hat-stand-like modification to my original Snead lamp. I am looking for a photo of an intact lamp with the single socket that was never modified so we know how the helmet was actually attached.
