    I just inherited these beautiful lamps I was wondering if anyone knows what they are and where they are from. I can’t see anything on the bottom.

      I double checked the bottom and it is felt! So no info! Maybe under the felt but I don’t want to tear it off!

      The lamp, excluding the cylinders, looks Rococo revival, late 19th century. The cylinders look newer. Maybe some sort of 'improvement' from early 20th century ?

      @Mmadura If you remove the felt (damp cloth held on edges) it will remove fairly easy and you can still replace it back with a light glue. It will not hurt the value any, people have to replace them all the time. They get worn.
      If you do take a look under the felt you should see a makers mark of L&L WMC (Loevsky & Loevsky White Metal Casting) was in business in Carlstadt, N.J., from about 1937 until at least the 1970s.
