    Possible cast white metal fixture with polychrome finish/ dark bronze gilt. I saw something similar that was categorized as Revival circa 1929. The base is composed of dolphins and it has what appears to be a bowl out of which 4 exposed globe bulbs extend and hold a glass vase. Included are unusual female cameo portraits and gryphons? (see last photo). The crystal drops are purple and 8 are missing. I would appreciate any information about this lamp. It was my grandmother's and she has passed away. Could it have held fruit and flowers? Any ideas will be appreciated.

      Very similar to my 2 lamps. Like you, I can't find any information regarding these. I would be very interested to know more about the origins of these.

      This is known as an epergne lamp. It looks as if you have original bulbs. My understanding is that it was made by the Miller lamp company in the 1920s
