This lamp was inherited by me from my late mother, I believe she bought it in the early 70's at a antique dealer/auction? it stands 42" from base to chimney, has two cherubs wrapped together as the base. the oil burner has duplex made in england stamped on it. I looked up and found its a double wick with snuffer. glass or crystal reflectors? not sure what they are called, but they hang around the bottom of the shade. I need some help figuring out just what this is and how old it is. I have tried for hours on end to find another one like this, to determine its value for my insurance, but as of right now I have not come across anything close to it. ideas anyone? This is a fantastic lamp, I love it, just wish I had more info on it.

    I have the identical lamp, except that it is the hanging model. My mother also purchased it in the '60s or '70s, and told me it was very expensive. She is now deceased. Did you discover anything on your model? I see one identical to yours on sale on Ebay for $59,500.00 asking price, though it is for sale by a seller who sells many different types of items, not specializing in lamps/antiques, thus the price may not reflect genuine rarity.
