This lamp came home from an estate with my husband. He thought it was artful and as I look at it I see his point. The tube which emulate cast iron (although I don't think it is...see the last photo, look closely at the finish, it is hand applied, a dark reddish black). The tube splay out top and bottom and have a band wound around he middle which appears to be brass wire as does the tassel. I think it looks like something from the '50's but I could be mistaken. I am looking for some help from someone knowing more about lamps! Please give me your insights. Notice that it has a big brass ball contained in the splayed "iron" uprights. The shade it came with was clearly not original...
