    received_855683792955546.jpeg received_1730962340750963.jpeg Hi! I started collecting hurricane lamps a couple months ago - I was just taken aback by the varieties and class!

    Yesterday, I picked this lovely lamp up - when I posted it to the internet, they said it might look UV reactive? I wont be able to tell until my blacklight comes in.

    Can you tell me anything about this? What is the material? Its opaque like milk glass but tan and almost yellowy...

    Hi it almost looks like a custard ivory color on my screen.
    Wait for the experts to help you out.

    Gosh, it just looks like a beige glass 1990s or newer repro lamp to me, but admittedly this is not an area of expertise for me. I'll be interested to see what happens when you get your black light!
    A nice classic design in a neutral color. :)

    The shape reminds me of the Quoizel lamps.

    Not a worry. If it ends up being just regular ol glass - I'll still be obsessed! The shape is so retro futuristic!

    Will definitely update when I get a blacklight

    No Markings...
    And I did get a blacklight and DID confirm it is not UV reactive glass. But alas, I still love it.
