Hello my name is***** am a certified appraiser and would be happy to help you. Can you tell me a few things about this lamp? How tall is the lamp, is the lamp porcelain, resin or metal? Is the cord material covered or modern cording? Are the white spacers just under the light bulbs plastic or cardboard? This will all help in giving you information and an accurate value. Thank you

Hello! Thanks for the quick response. I will send you detailed answers in the morning, but for now all I know is that this lamp is extremely heavy. So, it is made of some type of metal. I also attached a few other photos

This lamp is Italian done in 1880-1900 era and from I have found made of cast iron. It was done in the art nouveau style and would have been a center lamp for a main table. The value is 350-425.00 and the cord on the lamp looks to be from the 1930-1940s so it was rewired or wired from the start at this time. It could have been a lamp for candles to begin with however I can not tell by the photos.

If I may be of further assistance please let me know. I am always happy to help.
