Q: I have a reverse-painted lamp that has been in my family for about 75 years. The glass shade has a scene of a landscape painted on it. The height of the lamp is 21 inches, and the shade is 18 inches in diameter. It has no manufacturer's or any other identifying marks. What can you tell me about it?A: The scene on the lamp was painted on the inside of the shade -- thus the name "reverse painting." Bases were frequently made of metal with a brass, copper, bronze or silver finish.Unmarked lamps make identification quite difficult.
