    I have a very unique, one-of-a-kind find here that I'm hoping someone can help identify. This gorgeous Victorian-style piece, here is a full set table lamp; a bronze cast iron, thick and detailed base with a sturdy center connecting a round glass table with bronze cast iron embroidery all around the glass to match the unbelievable bronze lamp shade. The lamp itself is anything beyond a work of art; original decorative chain emblems to turn it on and off, a gorgeous matching bronze cast iron stem which goes with the table trim as well as the base, and a shade like no other. Four light aqua beads come down in every crease in between small embroidery on a "mold" color shade with silver accessories to accent the bronze. That's not all, the best and my favorite part is the top; it has four peaks aligned up perfectly portraying a castle type look. It's quite a historic, Victorian-style piece. If anyone by chance has any idea what brand this piece could be, I would super appreciate any information. Thank you!

      How do you know it's "unique" or "one-of-a-kind"? Welcome to CyberAsylum/CW. Yes, we are skeptics on claims like that.

      Hi there, I don't think this is a Victorian-style lamp. Victorian era lamps were mainly oil lamps (various kinds of oil were used). The style you show would seem to be an eastern European lamp of some kind. It might have been converted to an electric lamp at some point, as a hole has been drilled in the base, and also through the glass stand.

      On this page there is a couple of "Victorian-style" bronze lamps. These two lamps are from 1915. So, don't believe everything you read on eBay either.
      I would suggest you do some research on the origin of the lamps.
