This lamp has been passed down for several generations of the family. I'm told that it is a "reverse painted lamp" as the painting on the globe is on the inside. When the lamp is on, in a dark room, it casts the picture on the globe onto the wall...it's beautiful and can't really be put into words. It's in excellent condition. Family history places this somewhere in the late 1800s.
Any idea of the history or timeframe on this? Also interested in approximate value.
