Do you have any old OC White articulating task lamps or parts you're willing to part with? Also, I like Faries lamps too. I'm always looking for parts. Please send me a message if you have anything. I find they compliment my fans very well in my study.

Lamps (or parts for these lamps) like this one, as pictured on my desk, are what I'm looking for:


Additionally, I'm looking for another elbow joint like this, if any of you good fellow fan-collectors have anything like it:

Unfortunately, BST is only for fans or fan related stuff.  If you were a member you could post in the "Other Collectibles area"

I'm really sorry. I did not mean to violate the rules. Can you direct me to the membership page? I'm a big foggy on the details. Again, my apologies.

I had one of those lamps like you have pictured. I put it on eBay about four or five years ago not knowing much about it. I was really surprised at the outcome! I have never found one since

No worries, welcome, but didn’t want you to be deleted by the moderators

I've always been curious why these are so valuable.  They are cool looking, but there seems to be plenty for sale on ebay at high prices.  Sold archives confirm the value.  Sellers are constantly using "OC White Era" in their titles on lamps that are not OC White.

John, the way I heard it, a few years ago, the "up and coming" young residents in NYC started buying these up and paying whatever price it took to achieve the desirous "industrial look" for their fashionable lofts.  They weren't concerned with quality, it's all in the name.  It's what their friends were buying, so they had to have one, too.

Ben, I have been buying antique lighting for the past 20 years.  Time was, I could go to a flea market any buy lights and lighting parts all day long.  Sadly, those days appear to be long gone as finding good parts are few and far between.  I used to find Faries items from time to time back in the day.  They were just starting to get popular and weren't particularly expensive.  I haven't kept up, so I don't know what the market for them looks like today.  At that time, everyone was buying Emeralites.  I don't think I have any Faries items left in my inventory, but I will look around tomorrow and see if I see anything.

It is not an OC white but it is my favorite. It is from the late 1800's i think. There are no marks on it at all. No candle power or other marks. Works great. Not selling just showing. These old ones are getting harder to find. I wish I knew who made this one.

I agree with everything you said except the last bit. It may say OC White, but its the style and aesthetic that is what people cling too. Like how a 1906 Pancake will sell for 4 times the cost of a Tank of the same age. It's a little bit of both. I think a big draw for most of the OC-White "Knuckles" are the ones that have the faucet-like angle adjusters.

This is not O.C. White, but just cool in my opinion. Found it at a farm auction with 5 layers of neon green, orange and yellow paint (1970s) for $12.50. One of my best investments, because I was very happy to see there was still enamel under those layers. Made by the SAVE-LAMP CO. in Baltimore, MD. It is by far my favorite lamp.
