I found these two lamps at a thrift store, I have no idea how old they are but there hand made from wood and metal, Even the chains links are hand made they have real textured thick amber glass panels, and were the light bulb is they have a big round cup like plate like a candle stand. the big one is in the shape they were found in i cleaned up the small one but i see i missed a spot.. lol. I would liker some input if any of you know anything about these. i once met a fellow years ago that told me about really old lamps that used candles and described this same base were the bulb base now sits. the shade is all hand made rod iron and hand carved wood with heavy textured amber glass panels all rusticity welded together. the Chains also are hand formed and were also rusticity welded together. i learned welding started in the very early 1800s and looked allot like this. But i have no clue so im hope'n you all can help me out on knowing there age and origins since they are quite old and notably hand made. Thanks
and no they are real wood not fake..
