    It looks to me to be European, probably Czechoslovakian and prior to WWI. Your is in amazing condition considering its age. Do you use it? It must look great when lit. Remember to use low wattage bulbs; I wouldn't go higher than 25w, heat will easily crack the glass.

    You were absolutely spot on!
    The lamp is European and dates pre WW1
    I found a website that would give me a valuation
    They value came back approx £700
    I will now let my husband hang it in the house!
    I thought it was just a cheap old lantern!
    Many thanks

    Glad to help! Very nice appraisal and I am glad you are going to use it. I hope James can find the rest to his and use it.
