I was wondering if someone could please tell me what I have? This lamp was purchased 60yrs ago by my grand father from a old German man. It has been in family since excellent condition was never had any repairs.

    Is this a table lamp or floor lamp? I appears to have been a kerosene burning lamp. Has it been electrified? If so, has it been drilled? All of this could affect the value.
    The style of the shade is called Laburnum after the flower that it depicts.
    Tiffany Studios made a base and shade like yours, but there have been good reproductions for years. I would find a Tiffany expert to look at it in person and get a written authentication and appraisal.
    I have seen an authentic Tiffany floor lamp with your style of shade and base sell at auction for over $500,000.00.
    Remember, do not polish anything on this lamp. The base is supposed to be that greenish brown color.
    Please repost if you get it appraised, I would love to hear the story.
