    Anyone have a clue if these are worth anything? The Olde Dragon called them Gone with the Wind lamps.

    She's right. Electric lamps were very popular during the Civil War.


    :p
    Sorry. Couldn't resist. The stuff women say make me laugh.

    Those things are good awful... Bet some hipster will pay good money for them... Etsy is probably the order of the day to sell something like that.

    They are commonly called Gone with the Wind lamps. The market is very soft on them right now, but they're still worth $ 75.00 to $ 100.00 each. Good luck, Curt.

    Gotta be worth something especially the 2 with matching body and globe. My mother has a half dozen oil lamps that were converted to electricity with the hurricane funnel style clear globe but no decorative globes like that. Antiques buyers are fickle. What's hot today is cold tomorrow. Good luck.

    they are called gone with the wind lamps, the original versions looked like this only the bottoms were filled with kerosene, and someone else mentioned markets down i believe they're correct because bottoms fallen on glassware in general. sometimes these were actually original converted to electric, while repos were made early to mid 1900's if i recall.
