Hi John, it is 7 1/2" tall (190mm) to the top of the ferrule. Nice lamp but I tend to prefer bigger ones. Picking a large one up tomorrow that I got off the local ebay last week.

Will post it here in the next few days.

Good luck finding who made your candlestick. I think we should put a proviso on all who enter this site "Beware! without a label and even with a label it is unlikely we will be able to id your glass".
Clean and Crisp a Murano twist.
Archimede tops my list.

Thanks for taking a look Anita and yes, it is nice and growing on me too.

I can see the similarities to your lamp Ardy, especially the decoration on top of the heads. There are a few things that differ and I guess they would need to be sturdier to support a shade. On balance I think probably not Seguso.

I agree. ;D

No direct link to your candlestick but here is a Archimede Seguso candlestick with prunts on our local ebay.

Thank you both, a fair few examples and probably a fair few makers too. Life would be boring if every item was marked..... :pb:
