Rewiring a lamp with no access

Q. Hi I'm Hollie from Georgia and was given a lamp to rewire. When I received it I saw no place to enter the lamp without making a cut underneath. Has anyone ever had one of these lamps and perhaps know where I can start to rewire?

A. Hi Hollie
While we're waiting for someone with experience, it looks to me like the pole will unscrew from the base. If not, you could perhaps cut the plug off the end of the existing wire, temporarily splice your new plug wire to it, and pull it all the way in and through from the bulb end?
Luck & Regards,

thumbs up sign I did indeed find a way to unscrew it and the bottom, and it worked. Thanks ever so kindly.
