    Purchased these yesterday. Metal for mounts appears to be bronze with gilding.
    They have wear to the gilt in appropriate places. Casting looks pretty good. Has nice detail.
    Panels on the blue ground porcelain are hand painted and the gilt surround is raised. Florals on both sides. All 4 panels are different.
    The electric switch collars are different designs. And one is missing the turn key.
    My question is were they meant to be electric and how old do you think they are?
    They weigh about 14 lbs apiece. No marking on mounts or on the porcelain that I can see.
    One has the cloth covered cord and levitron rocker switch.
    Could they possibly be samson?
    I can't even find examples similar to the castings. The little satyress perched in the handles has nice detail.
    Have not tried to clean or polish for fear of doing something I shouldn't.
    Any ideas about what I've latched onto here?

      Beautiful! Some references to the shape of the roses as "cabbage rose". Hope it helps!
