Crescent or Brooke Glass Company Hobnail Milk Glass Lamp
According to Tom Felt, the base of this Hobnail lamp was made by the Crescent Glass Company (later renamed the Brooke Glass Company) in Wellsburg, WV. They were in business as early as 1908. The date this particular piece was first put into production is unknown. but they were still offering this lamp base (as no. 61) as late as 1983, when the name change occurred. Some catalogs references both names.

The glass company would not have assembled the lamp themselves, so it is unknown whether the shade is also theirs. It does not appear in any of Mr Felt's catalogs and may have been obtained from another source by the company who actually created this lamp.
