    In 1999, I bought a HW bedroom suite at an estate sale. It came with two of the shorter lamps. I have never seen any other info on these lamps (nowhere on the lamps are any HW reference). I’ve looked online, in my HW reference book, etc. I love seeing your pair!

      Jean – You are super lucky to have those lamps…they are really, really hard to find!! Yeah, there are absolutely no markings anywhere on the lamps at all so most people do not know they are HW. From what I have heard the lamps were promotional pieces given out to HW furniture buyers back in the day for a very short period of time…..like if you bought so much $$$s worth of furniture you’d also get a set of lamps thrown in for free. I’m not sure how the people I bought these from wound up with a short and a tall lamp as it was more typical to have a matched set like you do. At any rate I am super thrilled to have the HW lamps!

    These are so beautiful, I love them!

    Jean-how wonderful you were able to pick up a bedroom set and two lamps! I have never seen any HW at any estate sale or garage sale I go to, I think I would probably fall over if I did find something!

      Thank you Maureen! I have seen HW maybe just a handful of times at the thrifts, estates sales, etc. So you may just come across some one of these days! 🙂
