Need help identifying lamp.

Posted by timelessperiod (My Page) on

Hello, I'm wondering if anyone knows anything about this lamp. It's very heavy, I'm thinking cast brass, with a glass shade embossed with flowers and it has the fringe along the bottom. The design reminds me a bit of the Victorian fabric style lamp shades. I just don't really know how old it is or its value, cause I couldn't find one with similar body and shape. I appreciate any help! Thank you!

I don't think it's very old -- possibly 20 years or less.

However, the glass shade MIGHT be "repurposed" from an old ceiling fixture ... or it could be original to the lamp. It's hard to tell from the photo.
