Hello and welcome to the board. :)

 :o What a lovely thing!
What I am wondering is, if the lampshades and the setting originally belong to each other or if somebody has bought, or had made, suitable new shades to add to an old fitting.
They are lovely shades, but could be quite new.
This happens a lot.  :)
Glass does move around the world a lot, but looking for a maker close to you geographically, might help.
Are there any markings on the stand/base itself?
Cheers, Sue (M)

hello,
I bought the lamp from some who's parents and grandparents have a large collections of antique objects. They bought it by antiquairs. I was just curious to know something about the glassmaker. I check the lamp if I can find a signature. In Belgium you can find easily art deco, jugendstil etc......people did love it a lot and many have still objects of their grandparents.
thank you for your reply

 :) You have some very, very good glassmakers in Belgium. The contemporary ones are not as well known as the big names like VSL. But I do know they are there.
There is another Belgian lady here, who knows a lot about VSL and probably other Belgian makers too, and she loves old things.
I think we need Anne Tique to come along and give us her opinion. :)
I'm sorry I can't help you more, but there are others who might.

We don't give up here. ;D

Cheers, Sue (M)

This is not a Belgian production but French, signed Tief [tea-Ťf].

Thank-you so much, Anne. :-*  I did hope you might be able to help, but not as much as this in just one reply!

They have shades in their spare parts section and it looks like the 'Berger' [bŤr-shay] model.
