Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I would love to help. The next step would be for me to see pictures of the lamp and the markings so that I can get visual clues of the date and value. Use the Add Files feature on your screen to add pictures.

Hello,

I see that the automated phone call request popped up there. I do not provide that service, so please disregard. Antiques are visual and we work solely from photos, so please do add those when you have a minute.

I see that the phone service thing has popped up again. I do not participate in that service because it charges you more money and I don't want to do that when I can work from your photos. Can you get pictures of this lamp?
