Found this item in a storage building we bought. Have no idea what era it is from, or what it is worth.

    Is this a tension lamp? If so the first ones came out in I believe the 40s.This looks like an early one.It looks to me like the gold foil and adornments on the shades were added not factory done.The shades I believe are painted or flashed from the inside.This could be the original hardware or because of the design it would be extremely easy to change the fitters and or globes.They could be married pieces.If the prisms are plastic (which is my suspician) I would place them in the 50s or 60s.The globe and fitters also look 50s or 60s.Not typically real valuable.
