Wow, one of the most amazing lamps I have ever seen. On top of that an incredibly complex construction, Very high end for when it was made.

I would like to see a lot more pics, details of inside, best non blurry close-ups you can manage please, hinges, if present from both sides, entry and exit for fitting. Check very care fully for a foundry mark, could be small and well concealed.

p.s. Are you in US?

While I need to see how the glass was made and fitted, the metalwork is probably the key here.

Thanks for all the pictures, very much a WOW piece and after studying all the images... more WOW.

I am going to need some time to really study them but my initial thoughts are American Art Nouveau but probably made in the early 1920s. Very unlikely before 1910 and not likely as late as 1930. The glass was made in special moulds. and with all those castings, a lot of work.

Can you see if the yellow lozenges have been glued to the opal panels, or if they are stained/enamelled. One of the red fruits appears to be clear glass at the edge, is this the case?

Did you find and markings on the metal parts, would be inside or on one of the many edges.

Unfortunately the supporting metalwork has had the original patination polished off, it should be the same colour as the rest of the lamp, and I would have expected with all that work a cast link or machined brass chain, but they do break easily so being replaced is not a big deal.

This is likely to be a very valuable piece and if it can be linked to a major designer even more so.
