I have a very old double wick oil lamp I am trying

Customer Question

I have a very old double wick oil lamp for which I am trying to identify and date. it is hard to describe...made of lead with a type of artsy design engraved on it. It is missing the lamp, but the piece that would hold the lamp in place I do have. I really need to send you some pictures...or maybe you could recommend someone who has extensive knowledge of oil lamps. Any assistance would be helpful.
Thank you,

Hello,

Are there any maker names or marks on the knob that would raise the wick, stamped on the neck or underside?
