Please help with this lamp it has no marks or stamps,the plug says Vimar.also please help with the tear drop lamps no name or markings the plug says Gilbert.

Answer
The brass lamp appears to be European, probably England. It has Middle Eastern/Asian influence. It is hard to tell the age but it is not new. It is unique and could be worth $100. You can usually disregard names on plugs or switches because those are usually the electrical parts mfg, not the lamp mfg.

The prism lamps appear to be from the 1960s and are worth about $40-$50 each.
