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

    It may be the base and other parts, but looks pretty new. Nice though. Phil.

    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.
