Hi again,Can you give me a guesstimate on the value of my Charles Murphy chrystalline lamps with birds?They are a matched set,in perfect condition. The estate where I purchased them also had Yearbooks (from the 50s) for Red Wing high school.Is it possible to find out if a specific person worked in the factory during the time this designer line was produced? Thanks again,Kim

Answer: Hi Kim

The Society and Foundation do have some records of who worked at the factory. I think the birds came off shape 1296. Book value for the lamps are around 400.00 each. It’s just really hard to say what they would sell for, some people aren’t fond of lamp bases, and yet the birds will add some interest, too. thanks, steve n rose
