 'No one with a shred of integrity would do an appraisal over the internet.  There are too many variables to consider.  Hands-on examination is the only way to determine 'value' - (The International Guild of Lamp Researchers.)'.

If a maker's mark is not on the pages then information on it will not be available. 

Good photos of unknown marks are welcome for addition to the 'unknown' pages for possible identification.  An accompanying shot of the item itself is also helpful. 

Information and illustrations that are added to the website are gratefully acknowledged.

Contributions and helpful comments are welcome.
