Greetings: I purchased this lamp about 25 years ago in a Belgian antique shop. Except for the spider, it is all glass. The dealer had 12 of these lamps and claimed they were purchased from a renovated hotel in Normandy. I bought all 12. However, I returned 11 of them as I needed some quick extra cash for a must-have purchase at the Sunday Tongeren antique market. They are etched signed in the glass "Le Verre Francais" (picture 4). This company was most famous for its cameo glass products and signed its glass in at least 4 ways: Schneider, Charder, Le Verre Francais, and with a candycane strip of embedded glass. The lamp is 24" tall and 15" wide at its widest. I am not really sure of the age. Comments/opinions appreciated. Regards.

    Wow! This is a relatively rare LVF piece, as I have found there are about 10 to 1 vases vs. lamps out there. This one is unusual for LVF, in that most of Schneider's LVF was cameo acid-etched. This one has the style of the pieces marked Schneider or Charder or both. She's a beauty! It's also hard to find 90 year-old glass lamps like this with the shades intact. That's why you see so many lamp bases being sold by themselves. Great buy; and where are the other 11 now I wonder. :)

    Okay I have to know what was better than 12 of these beauties? And, do you regret it now?
  8. Nootch Nootch, 2 years ago
    AmberRose: Believe it or not, no - I don't regret it. I'll post what I purchased in lieu of the other 11 lamps in a few moments. Regards.
