Cambridge Lamp in New Colors
The original Cambridge Glass Company of Cambridge, Ohio made a number of electric lamps based on flower frog figures. One of these original lamps used a figure called Draped Lady.
This same Draped Lady figural lamp has been reproduced. Our sample is an orangish-pink color. Some of the other new colors include green and cobalt blue. Most of the new lamps have the normal shiny finish, but others have iridescent carnival-type finishes.
Original standard production Draped Lady lamp bases were made in clear crystal. Any colored glass base should be considered suspect. Original bases sell between $125-$175; the new bases average $10-$15 wholesale.
