Customer Question

Hi. I have a lamp that I inherited from my grandmother. My mother recalls my grandmother getting it from another woman in the late 1950s. It is mad mov metal with antiqued painting in what I think is a Venetian type decor with leaves and vines. The glass shade broke and I'd like to replace it. It am not having much searching luck. Any ideas

Oops. Can't any makers marks. However, in the base of the lamp ther is a B P and 1161v4 or 11g1v4 in what looks like magic marker. I've added a photo of it too.

I have not found a replacement shade to this for you.
I will opt-out and your question will open again to all the experts. If someone can locate one for you they will post a response to you here. You do not need to re-list your question and this does not cost you extra.
I will not be able to respond back after opting-out.
I do hope you find the information that you seek.
Sincerely,
