I purchased this lamp at an auction and was wondering if anyone could tell me something about it, age etc. The glass it multi-colored blown. I've never seen anything like it and I can't seem to find one even similar on-line. Thank you for any information you might have.

    I am pretty sure your lamp is Czechoslovakian or at least European in make and probably dates to the turn of the century. The type of shade is nicknamed a "roller coaster shade" because the ruffled rim looks like a roller coaster. The decoration is wonderful and I am so glad to see that you have all three pieces and none have been lost or broken. Thank you for sharing.

    Thank you so much for the information. I also see it has a Kosmos Brenner burner, however that could have been a replacement at some point.

    decoration is secessionist. so date would be about 1900-1914 or thereabouts.

    what's crazy is that the glass is pure victorian and the decoration is seccessionist. you don't often see crazy marriages of style like that. I guess that means it is probably the earlier end of the date range. left over victorian stock decorated with the newest hotness or something along those lines. Normally I wouldn't love something like this but you just don't see transitional stuff like this every day.
