    I checked the completed listings on Ebay for this lamp...

    I found 2 listed at 39.99 - neither sold. Search ebay for southern belle lamp...
    Looks like ebay doesn't have much of a demand...
    That listing is still up I beleive, but you might try listing in a different category, or If I were you, I would go on an all out mission trying to figure out WHICH GLASS company made it- that way you can list in with the manu. name in the title, which pulls collectors. However, if the site listed above doesn't know of the maker, chances are, it will be a hefty task...

    Well, then the value to you could be impossible to determine. As far as "how much it will sell for" and "where it will sell", does that translate to value? Is there "sentimentality" in the lamp? If so, it could be invaluable...

    If antique houses (like the link here) are selling if for a certain amount, you can be almost certain they paid significantly less.

    Is money the only indicator of value? Certainly not...
    So, in summary, only you know the value of the lamp if you are not looking at it from a monetary perspective...
    LOL

    whenever I would ask my daddy (collector of very old relics) how much value a piece might have, he'd always say, "things are only worth what someone is willing to pay."

    Wink Value Of Depression Glass

    Just to Let you no some tip! You can go to your local liabrary in your area and look for books in that topic or ebay has books on that topic as well! I sell on ebay have for long time! You actually do better selling things like this at a local antique shop, dont sell to them but get a booth after you collect more antiques good way is to get it from a place like ebay or garage ,thrift stores etc. Some people dont no what they are looking at! I have sold & bought on ebay and never have gotten ripped off either like most say, so does my husband! It helps making ends meet! Also if someone is looking for something or wants something post and I will see If I have it! Thanks!
