Vintage copper and brass lamp
United States of America

Acquired from
Auction House

For sale

This copper lamp with wood and brass pedestal is 30 inches tall and the base measures 5 inches wide and deep at the base. There are a pair of lions' head ornaments on each side. There is no hallmark or anything else that I could see that hints at its place of manufacture.



Origin is unknown, but it came in a lot with several other interesting pieces (lighting).

Hello Delia:
Seasons Greetings. Do you know in which country this lamp might have been manufactured?

Good morning, Rhonda,
Definitively, no....but it's got a very English or European look to it and I've added that just now to the description.
Happy holidays!
