If anyone has any info on this German lamp I would appreciate it. Came from my great-grandmother's house - definitely at least 100 years old or close to it. Made of iron I think, and the fruit she is reaching for are clear/colored beads wired together around the lights, so when lit, offer a soft colored glow.

Thank you

    Hi, yes it is in immaculate condition. I've never known it to not be in my great-grandmother's house, so that's about 45 years, and when my great-grandmother died, it went to my grandmother. My grandmother said the same thing - she's always known it to be in her mother's house and my grandmother is 96, so it's definitely got age. All I can think of is in those days, things were more valued and taken care of, and knowing my grandmothers, I know this was treated with great care which explains it's condition. I would love to find it's origin, value and a little history.
