I just bought this unusual pair of lamps at an estate in Philadelphia.
Looks like they're Gesso over wooden frame, with stained glass inserts in the lantern style tops.
The pull chain mimics the shape of the tripod feet!
They've been electrified (need rewiring).
I wonder if they were originally funeral parlor lamps?
Would they've always been electrified, or oil?
Have a French look to them, any idea how old they are and where they might be from?
Thanks for looking,
