Greetings: I purchased this lamp about 25 years ago in a Belgian antique shop. Except for the spider, it is all glass. The dealer had 12 of these lamps and claimed they were purchased from a renovated hotel in Normandy. I bought all 12. However, I returned 11 of them as I needed some quick extra cash for a must-have purchase at the Sunday Tongeren antique market. They are etched signed in the glass "Le Verre Francais" (picture 4). This company was most famous for its cameo glass products and signed its glass in at least 4 ways: Schneider, Charder, Le Verre Francais, and with a candycane strip of embedded glass. The lamp is 24" tall and 15" wide at its widest. I am not really sure of the age. Comments/opinions appreciated. Regards.
