I have just aquired about 20 antique oil lamps from my fathers friend and I am having trouble indentifying several of them? This is by far the most beautiful and ornate. Dark green almost black, it is hand painted ( the paint is really!! raised off the surface. It is in perfect condition with no chips or cracking. I don't see any identity marks on the lamp. The base is brass. the oil lamp area is all intact and it comes out of the ornate piece in one piece. I also have the glass dome that goes with it, Dark green solid color. (had to leave at parents, for now.) If anyone has a clue, I would love to hear your opinion on it. Many more items to follow.
Thank you,
