Customer Question
I AM SEARCHING FOR...

I AM SEARCHING FOR THE VALUE OF A VINTAGE TABLE LAMP WHICH HAS CERAMIC OR PORCELAIN FIGURES AT THE BASE. IT IS MARKED INSIDE F/313 MADE IN ITALY

Expert's Assistant: Don't you just love the idea of finding something valuable in your attic? I do, but I think all I have up there is junk my brothers abandoned before they left home. Always a good idea to check things with the Antiques Appraiser, though. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

THIS LAMP IS APPROXIMATELY 30" TALL. I BELIEVE THE BASE IS BRASS AND IT MEASURES 10" X 13" ABOVE THE BASE ARE 3 CERAMIC OR PORCELAIN FIGURINES. AT THE TOP OF THE LAMP ARE 3 LAMP FIXTURES..

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

IN THE CENTER OF THE LAMP IS A BRASS POLE WHICH CONTAINS THE ELECTRIC WIRE. THE POLE IS 24" TALL.

I will be pleased to help you. Please know I do not send pop-up offers.
Although I am USPAP-trained, the assessments given here do not meet USPAP requirements.

Thoughtful responses take time. My responses are not instantaneous.

Please send your photos the email method.

This is the official explanation of how to send photos via email:

They will forward them to me and as soon as I get them I will contact you.

Kind regards,

Doris
