I believe that the colorful part of the lamp is made from ceramic and that the base of the lamp is made from brass. I am not completely for sure though. The ceramic part of the lamp has quite a bit of detail and the base of the lamp also has engravings. The plug itself has two prongs and does not have a ground and the part that you put the light bulb in says Levitan Made in USA 250w-250 v. The actual ceramic part of the lamp has a marking on it that says MADE IN ITALY 340, it is on the underside of the lamp. I think they are from the 30s or before. I would love to know more about these lamps and possibly the value.

    Thank you! They are really so much more intricate and detailed when you actually see them. The photos don't do them any justice. I just wish I knew more about them.
