I have this lamp, what is it worth?
* The base measures approx 9” x 9”.
* The lamp is approx 22” high from base to the top of the finial.
* Looks like Walnut Finish to me.
* There is a small topical crack in the wood right under where the cord exits the base. But the crack disappears into the lamp and doesn’t go through the base or through to the bottom of the lamp.
AW says: Your right on about the Walnut finish because Walnut is a dark wood, but I think that your lamp is more likely to be Mahogany.
It’s meant as a companion piece to the well made Mahogany furniture sets of this period. There were many Walnut sets as well but were of different forms than what would match the style of this lamp.
Date range: 1910s-30 $65 (I’m assuming you don’t have a shade, but a well matched shade can bring the value up significantly and help sell it faster.)
Wholesale value: $35
(The midrange price you could expect to achieve at a well advertised live auction. The price that is most often realized)
Quick sale value: $20
The price your likely to get if you have to sell your item immediately and your prospective customer is aware of this.

In most cases, I believe it would be beneficial for your to give the prospective buyer a link to this page, and to bookmark it via your favorite bookmarking service.
Care: If this is ever gouged or scratched Old English scratch cover was made for this and will have dark woods looking new in 30 seconds.
