What does this mean?

Hi Rhonda,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
I dont see the Arabic script you mention but strongly suspect this was made for the export market and the script doesn't translate accurately into anything significant (one sees that a lot on Oriental rugs, too).
Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:

A large Orientalist style relief-decorated brass table lamp
Made for the export market, probably made in the Near or Middle East, 1900-1920
With bands of relief-worked decoration.
38 inches tall
CONDITION: minor use wear
PROVENANCE: acquired with other lamps
*represents a fair-market value for auction purposes; retail or asking price may vary.
