    My dad gave me one of these lamps years ago. It is signed on the outside bottom of the decoration. So that led me to believe all of these would be signed in the same kinda place. But this one was in the thrift store for 4.00 and I doubted it to be authentic because I could not find a signature. But now that I've taken the time to really look it over...I found a number and the word CAPODIMONTE in handwritten gold leaf.
    Does anyone know how to determine if it's authentic?
    Thanks for looking and any info you may have!

      No idea why these are sideways.

      There are many companies who have adopted the name, so I believe that Richard Ginori is the name your looking for, I think there’s a collectors club or google his marks. Also, if these were urns made into lamps, the value will be diminished dramatically :(
