This is the second of a pair of vintage Gone-with-the Wind-style lamps made by the Fenton Glass Company, I think. The other lamp, as well as some coordinating Fenton rose satin glass items have already been listed during the last week. The lamp is made of Pink/Rose Satin Glass with embossed poppies, stems and leaves. The 'POPPY' pattern was made from 1967-1974. It is about 23 1/2" tall; the globes are approximately 8 1/2" in diameter across the widest area with a 4" wide bottom fitter opening . The bottom globe is about 7" high and the top shade is 10 1/2" tall; both are the original globes. The highly decorative cast base, fittings and turn-key look like antiqued brass.

This is a three-way lamp with the original wiring and is fully functional. It could use a good cleaning as it was in storage for many years. The glass is in good condition, with no damage that I could see. Either the top, or the bottom, or both globes can be switched on. T urn the switch one time, and the top lights up; turn it again, and the bottom lights up; turn again, and both top and bottom light up. T he top takes a standard bulb and the bottom uses a smaller night-light type of bulb.
