im not sure what type of lamp this is??? it is all glass and has no markings, and can only turn it off an on by unplugging it or plugging it in. it looks to be a lamp around 1900,s. it is missing some glass pieces, and not sure if they can be re-made. the leaves are orange and white glass, and the flower peddles are clear glass, the base is green glass.

    I have several of these lamps. They were probably made in a glass factory in Murano Italy by an apprentice glass blower. Yours has an unusual glass base most are set in premade containers. I think yours is also missing the green glass leaves. these are easily broken off and can't be replaced unless you can find another for parts. These usualy were made in the 30's and40's and are fairly common. You can add a swich to the cord which can be found at a local hardware store. Also these look great with different colored bulbs {Christmas}.

    Thanks Mark.... can you get the trunk of the tree re-wrapped with the string??? The leaves on this one are white and have orange designs in them. I see nothing that it had green leaves. They are pretty cool.. If you run across one I can buy, that would nice to know..again thank you....
