Hi All. I'm new here. I found this in a local, upscale NYC thriftshop and bought it for $35. The metal on the "petal" part of the flower shade is very bendable and bends easily. The neck on the lamp is rusty and made of another metal, maybe brass. The base is super-heavy and solid, like a paperweight. It's an odd piece because the neck arcs downward so the tulip shade touches the desk. Does anyone have any guesses as to what it's made of or when or where it was made? There's also a curious mark/symbol/insignia on the lamp's plug. Has anyone seen this before? It looks like a letter "S" and it has a nut/bolt sort of image in the left part of the "S". Thank you one and all for any and all considerations, questions, musings, guesses.
