Customer Question
I have a Capodimonte table...
I have a Capodimonte table lamp purchased 40yrs ago in a antique store has swirls of flowers then trees flowers ladies playing the flute all have cut outs it sits on a brass stand
thats has 4 what appears to be fish which connects to the bottom brass 2 inches high with decorative cutouts then under it looks like the stand is done in dots and some kind of design under
you can only peek through the stand to see the markings on the lamp and they appear to be 2 strange gold markings
it has a wire fixture which appears to go through the top through a brass cyinger that connects to the plug in

Hi There~
My name is ***** ***** I am here to help with your question.
At your convenience, please send photos. A full image with the design and a clear, in-focus close-up of the mark would be ideal.
When taking a clear close-up try using the macro function on your camera. It looks like a small flower icon. This will allow sharper focus at a closer-range.
When evaluating an item, photos are essential to helping me come to a correct assessment.
If there is a toolbar with a paperclip icon showing above the box where you type in responses, then follow the steps on this link for sharing photos:

I look forward to seeing the images. If you are unable to send photos right away, that is fine – there is not a time limit here.
Sincerely,
Nora
