I am attaching photos of 3 lamps that I have with switches on the bases.
The first one is called "Astro" Phantom Lite. It has an on/off switch on the cord and a dimmer switch on the front. The electrical cord comes out of the side.
The second one is marked on the bottom and says DG Lockwood V/TA/L53. It has an on/off push button on the front. In the photo you will see I am holding it on because it is broken and falls off.
The third one is marked on the bottom and says ACADEMY. It has an on/off push button on the front and looks A LOT like an early American lava.
I have never seen another example of any of them. I'm assuming Jonas is going to know all about them. If not, can anybody else help me identifying them?
I won one similiar to the first one a few years back. It has the switch on the base and the holes, but it is silver instead of gold. Here is the link to the thread on the previous site.

What a rare beauty. I wonder what this model was called?
Scroll down on link for Info and pics of the Phantom.
I have 2 of these without boxes and papers. I have tried to figure out how to get the top off as both are cloudy. Does anyone know if these are glued on tops or screwed on? I have tried gently but I don't want to break or bend the metal cap (copper cone). Thanks.
The metal lid will be glues to the plastic bottle lid. The whole thing will be screwed onto the bottle. Using the heat from a hairdryer followed by a firm unscrewing motion should work.
