Here are several more I currently own .Dodge Spelter head ache style late 30's hula lamps.
Both have been Ul re-wired matching cords for that period ,and custom Koolee made shades
in raw tea dyed silk with vintage NOS chenille fringe trim in olive green.I need to take better
pics,I am not pleased with these, but for right now these will have to do.The lamp with
clock has a bakelite base and much more rare.I know someone had posted on TC about
a year ago that they found one , can't remember who it was.














SOLD..... SOLD..... SOLD on 5-21-10

First the shade is all wrong .Look at the shade on my lamps, those are period correct
shades.They are custom made one at a time, and they are not cheap.The lamp needs to be
taken apart and then the metal polished out so the patina looks just right.Then you
want to check gears, lubricate etc.Install a silk wrapped cord always looks nice with
the right type of plug end.It takes time and money to make these lamps right.
PM me if you have any questions.

YEA, I know about the shade . It's from an old WITCO lamp I've got.A little
overbearing, chosen for a big old chunky hunk of chain sawed wood,not a half naked hula girl.It was just temp. for the pic.
None of the rest seems all that cost prohibitive though.I have polished a few intricate items before in my life,(vintage British motor cycles) ,I think I can handle that.
If the lamp is not going to be sold ,and just sit on a table in the corner of one of my tiki bars,(and wiggle her little ass off), I'm sure I can find a production shade that will serve just fine,until a real one comes along,and they always do.
But hey, thanks for the offer help if I run into problems.

another question;
is there a significance to the arms being up or down?
I've noticed that more of the bronze lamps are up with FEW being down.
or is that just a fluke of the selected pics?
not just your collection ,but through out ebay and the internet.
just some do and some don't?

This would be considered one of the holy grailles of vintage hula lamps .
I need to take some better pics so you can see the detail in the base
with the sessions clock.Definitely one of the more rare models .
