Hello, my name is***** am one of the expert appraisers here at justanswer. I would be happy to help you however I do not do the phone appraisals. If you wish to handle it over the phone I can opt out if you wish or I can continue to help you here. These are Italian done in the mid 1800s. The numbers you see 7726 and 1226 are the pattern numbers of the pieces. Can you tell me how tall the lamps are? Just the porcelain vases themselves? This will help me in giving you a value on the pair.

Expert:  LadyTanya65 replied 1 year ago.

Hi, yes they do have value and I am researching this now. If there is no name I could not say who for certain painted them. They were produced by a variety of painters who worked for the company. They were found to be produced for elegance in homes that enjoyed fine porcelains. I will post here shortly.
