I think it has more retail value. It is unusual, at least to my eye. But by the time it is packaged and insured and shipped across the country--it does not have enough value to sell to the trade on Mearto. Have you seen lamps like this? I have not. I will try my hand with retail pricing. Thank you.

No I haven't but the squat proportions are not very elegant to my eye. In the auction market, it warrants a lower, more conservative value.
