I think I've found a Witco lamp, but I'm not certain. It came with the cord, bulb holder and harp, but it had to be disassembled for me to cart it back to work. What you see here is 25.5" tall. Can anyone confirm this? There were no markings on it.

Yes it looks like the "Orientia" Lamp #La15. The picture I have has an additional square base it is attached to. But it could have come without it also.

Very interesting! Thank you!
I saw it and really could not leave it behind. It's almost impossible to find information online.

Hey! That's my woodshop project from 1972. Where the hell did you find it? It started off on the lathe to be a bong, but ol' 3 fingered Mr Roberts, my woodshop teacher, caught wind of it so it became a lamp (real quick).

Mr Roberts swore he had a whole warehouse full of kids confiscated bongs.

SWEET!

You mean I have a BONG original? I wonder how much people would pay to watch me burn it?
