Collectibles-General (Antiques)/set of antique lamps
Good Day: I have a set of antique lamps,there are no marking on them from the maker,there are three paintings of (angel/cherubs) on them I don't know if it is glass ,porcelain,milk glass, they have a tin or metal base with three claw feet and are brass or bronze or just some type of metal I would like to know the year they were made,value,who made them,and the type of materials they are made of the original shades were shredded and broken, but i do have the piece that hold them on. Thank You: H Jones
Thanks for the question. It would be very difficult for me to answer all your questions without actually seeing the lamps, but from your photos, they look like hand-painted porcelain to me. My guess from the design is that they would also be French, possibly Sevres from the late 1800's or very early 1900's. If all the surfaces are in good order as well as the brass bases, I would estimate that the pair would be worth about $500 - $700 in today's market. They are a beautiful pair of lamps, so get them some replacement shades and enjoy them.
Hope that helps.
