    It's usually best to post your mystery items separately. People who are experts on ceramic rooster lamps might know diddly about antique beds. (and furniture experts wouldn't have a clue you have furniture posted because all they see on your listing is a rooster lamp.) I can't tell you how often I rely totally on the image posted, and don't pay attention to the listing title!
    Sorry, I don't have any info about your items, just want to help you maximize your exposure and your chances of getting help.

    Really neat lamp AND I concur with stef-- suggest you split the lamp and furniture!

    Prior to radio, farmers relied on thermometers, barometers and wind speed and direction to prognosticate weather conditions. Weather vanes were very instrumental for this. After radio, however, these weather vanes, many of which were roosters, were used as purely decorative items and often made into lamps. These lamps became popular among collectors and soon reproductions were produced and sold. Because the majority of weather vanes were hand made an unique in many ways, identical ones seldom come to market. They were usually made of copper, although could be made of other metals. I have seen your rooster before and it is usually claimed as an older reproduction. I am not an expert on these, so I may be wrong. I would have someone who knows weather vanes and folk art to look at it to be sure. Thank you for sharing.
