It’s Not Easy Being Green: Early Fostoria Factory Lamp, ca. 1940s

Once again, that Fostoria lot have manged to sink their claws in.

Check out this indestructible ’40s task lamp, with a perfectly aged patina to the original green paint. This example also has a base-mounted switch rather than the more commonly seen toggle, at the lower end of the shade. The knuckles allow for good positioning and the manufacturer’s logo appears clearly, in Fostoria’s signature position, halfway across the front of the shade.
