Sadly without seeing the mark and the lamp it will be impossible to determine the age and value of the lamp. Is it possible that you ask someone to take pictures and send them to an email address?

Hello

I saw the pics, thanks for the effort. To known if it's a Capodimonte lamp we need to find the correct manufacturer mark. The mark will tell us if it's a genuine piece, it's date and possible, manufacturing city.

The Capodimonte mark should be similar to the ones attached to this message. The mark should be located in the base of the lamp, typically in this piece it's located in the base of the lamp. Could you locate such mark?

Thanks
