L&L WMC = Loevsky&Loevsky White Metal castings It was a company situated in New Jersey. The company was closed in the late 70's. They used to assembled many different patterns and styles of lamps.
They must've also made brass looking metal tables for their lamps, or just any lamp in general, because I have an ornamental 3 tier table that is 3 feet tall and has 3 shelves approximately 12" X 12" in size and with the logo (C.)1968 L&L WMC #888 stamped on it's underneath side. I just found it today and it is a beautifully made small table well worth the $20.00 I paid for it..No photos at this time...but will post one later if requested...
I'd be glad to see it. Please do post a picture.
Hang in there and I'll either get someone to take a picture of it on a cell phone and upload it to my website, or I'll see if I can figure out this sofisticated camera I bought at a yard sale...he he...
I'll be patient
Did they make chandeliers as well? I have an unidentified Tiffany style chandelier with an L&L WMC ceiling mount dressing plate (not too sure of the correct term.) While this could have been added at a later date it would make more sense that this was sold together does it not?
I think they made chandeliers too. This could be one of their patterns.
l&l wmc did a lot of reproductions of early 20th century electric lighting styles, such as slag and some stained glass. I believe they always marked what they made.
This photo is from the back of a reproduction sconce.
They also made Pilsner Glasses with silver plated Carriers, as I have a set of 6 silver plated glass pilsners with their original silver plated metal 14 1/4" tall ornate base marked L&L WMC 1970 #9121.
Great looking set of glasses..I have never seen any that looks even close to your set...So beautiful.
They are very pretty! Unfortunately, I need the money more than I do them, so they are on Ebay right now. Starting bid $50. Go to: http://www.ebay.com/itm/150717381550?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
My mom has a lamp she bought at an estate sale with this same L & L WMC logo on the bottom of the brass bottom. I am attaching a picture. What can you tell me about this lamp?
I finally found a Lovely L&L WMC Stamped Base Lamp with a Red Glass Top, hand painted Rose in White and Pink, Table lamp. So small and Pretty. Great little Night Light Style. Dated 1973. It's now on my Etsy Shop for Purchase. A reall Cute Find.
I found a great piece of L&L WMC, but it says it was made in West Germany. Maybe that means just the top crystal part. Regardless its beautiful.
Recently acquired two of their pieces and can't find any info on them can anyone help
Nice lamps, how much would you say they weigh?
I can't give an exact amount(I haven't weighed them) but I would say around 6-7lbs apiece maybe I may try and weigh them later today
Just curious; as mine (a couple of posts above) is so deceivingly light. I found an antiques dealer near me (ironically enough I was there yesterday and it didn't enter my mind,) and will inquire with them. I'll place your pics on my phone and see if they can provide any insight. This won't take place immediately but I plan on returning there in two weeks.
Thank you so much Jonathan that would be wonderful.
Have you been able to get any information or an appraisal on yours Jonathan?
Not yet...my family told me it was a tiffany, (I'm no where near an expert) but I never believed it. However I know it is from the 50s if not older. I highly doubt it is anything substaintial, but being "stuck" with it it would be nice to know.
Looks like 'Art Nuoveau' style, turn of the century (20th century) so it could be Tiffany, but since it is L & L WMC, it is a copy of the original.
Did you ever find out the value of this white L&L WMC lamp? I have one just like it and would be curious to know.
I BOUGHT THE EXACT SAME LAMP AT A LOCAL THRIFT STORE FOR A 1.50! I LOVE IT I ALWAY LEAVE IT ON. HOW MUCH ARE YOU ASKING FOR YOURS. IM NOT SELLING MINE IM JUST CURIOUSE
I saved this L&L WMC lamp from my friends trash! She hated it and was going to throw it away. I love it!
It was a good decision for you to save it instead of throwing it away. A vintage lamp with that kind of elaborate design is valued from $120 to $295 on Ebay.
I've got two identical lamps with marking: L&L WMC 1973 at 32 1/2 inches tall..top & bottom lights. Any idea of value?
I found these at a yard sale marked L&L WMC 9546
