I have a brass lamp...
I have a brass lamp that I can’t locate online. The stamp shows EF EF Ind Inc No. 541x. I know they were out of Chicago and mass produced lamps but I’m unable to find anything that resembles my lamp or item number. I would like to get a value on it. Works great.

Hi thank you for your patience and assistance with the photos. EF & EF industries was a decorative lamp company in Chicago in the 1970s they made ornate glass lamps and brass cherub lamps such as yours. The value on your lamp is 175-225.00 for the single cherub. They were produced in 1970-1975 period.
