Customer Question

I have three brass table lamps from King Carol of Rumania's train. It was used by the German Military Staff during WWII and was captured by the British Army at the end of the war. Local Citizens were sacking the train so my Dad recovered the lamps. Are they of any particular value. The original pink silk shades were replaced.

I have researched these lamps and I can't find a match. I will opt-out of this question to open this to other experts. Perhaps someone else can help.

Thank you,

Hi my name is Tim. There would have to be some verifiable evidence that they were on the train and belonged to King Carol of Rumania and were on his train. So we have to start with the lamps themselves. are there any makers marks, symbols or emblems on them?
