  Ever Ready pic5.jpg - EVER-READY - Hard to find brass lamp, marked on base bottom EVER-READY PAT.PEND., manufactured by The Charles Hoppe Co., Cincinnati, OH, ca. 1914, unfired condition (patent #1,094,902 to C. Hoppe, Apr. 28, 1914; Ever-Ready is taller and more slender than earlier Snell lamp)   [The history of this lamp all starts with Arphad Snell who patented a lamp in 1911 and arranged with a fellow named Charles Hoppe to manufacture the lamp (Snell lamp) in his metal shop.  Mr. Hoppe eventually moved to Cincinnati and made the Snell lamp for a couple years till Mr. Hoppe started manufacturing an improved lamp in 1914 called the  Ever-Ready as shown here.  The unique spherical top and graceful lines of the Ever-Ready make it a popular and highly sought lamp.  Between 1914 and 1916, Mr. Hoppe produced a lamp called the Hoppe Brite-Lite that continued to evolve from the Ever-Ready.  In 1916, the Harker Mfg. Co. bought out the Hoppe metal shop and continued to manufacture the Hoppe Brite-Lite.  In 1917, Mr. Hoppe's name was dropped and the lamp was marked Harker Mfg. Co.  Sometime during the early 1920's (not quite clear), the Harker lamps were phased out and that was that.]  CHECK OUT THE HOPPE EVER READY DESIGN PATENT IN THE FOLLOWING PIC
