Anyone know the rarity of this tape and a value .
Searched and found 3 limited listings
Only value I found was $122.00 sold at auction online
I know it is was sold in a 1934 tool merchandise catalog for $0.75
A lamp that was my great-grandma's and my Dad (age 67) has always said it's an antique (he is not an expert in anyway). I know nothing about this. It has 2 pull chains, a circular wooden table, and is all metal. There is no lamp shade. 2 prong plug.
Height is about 52" - 52.5". Diameter of table is about 14"
I'm just curious if this is remotely worth anything or if it would be better as scrap. Thank you!
I know nothing about this other than it was my great-grandma's and my Dad (age 67) has always said it's an antique (he is not an expert in anyway). It is metal with 3 switches - one on the base, one to turn on the three lights, and one to turn on the main light. It's 56.25" tall. 2 prong cord. I'm just curious if this is worth anything or if it's a bunch of useless metal that would be better off being melted down. Thanks!
This item came to me from a distant relative who had no information at all about it. There are no markings identifying the maker, the year made...nothing. I found a website that lists a very similar one as "1930s American Classical Wooden and Steel Cedar Lined Trunk" and that's the only real info I have about it. The photos look almost exactly the same as the one I have. It has steel decor on the corners and slats, leather handles, it is cedar lined, the locks are a lift and clasp kind of thing...don't know the exact name of this type of closure. The lock is broken off so no indicating marks there.
