Many thanks

Probably 70's or 80's. Value of lighting largely depends on what it is worth to you, a similar new lamp might cost $100-$300 plus a bit for the name. Value used accordingly to less than that. But if 2 Sevres collectors decide they want this because of the name, the value depends on their wealth not wisdom.

Frank you said a mouthful  :D Value is usually determined by what someone is willing to pay. There's no rhyme or reason to it.

The way I determine the value of any item is EBAY. I just do search for the maker (if I know it) and then narrow it down to similar items. Once I have my Ebay info, I refine my search with Google. The last place I usually check is Go Antiques.
Never trade a diamond for a brick. No matter how bad you need a brick.
