    I don't know the history of this lamp and I have been unable to locate a replica. The glass is 1ft by 1ft. The cherub is ornate and is made of brass. It's my estimation the lamp was made sometime in the 60-70's.

      Your estimation appears correct, I have some that my dad collected. The hanging ones were usually sold in pairs and many had a table lamp also to make a set. Usually they had a metal diffuser over the bulb inside which mad the lamp light very beautiful. The table lamp had a trilight switch in case you just wanted the bulb in the bottom glass to light up. My father's set was marked on table lamp underneath, company name and dated 1972 which this one is close to in date.

      Interesting Bladerunner22. Wish I had the other two pieces. This lamp does have a metal diffuser and it runs the length of the glass. Do you remember the name of the company?

      Sometimes you will get luck and the name of the company will be on the socket on the inside. I have several of these swags. Most though from the 50-60s. Yours is older. I would say late 40s - early 50s. Cherub decoration is the clue to age.
