from: Rob Silversides: “I bought two of these lamps for $25. At a yard sale. I took them to a local antique shop that placed the bobochet at at least $300/pc. The bases are not original, the 7” crystal drops are irreplaceable. I’m having them cleaned, rewired, and restored with faceted crystal drops from the same period. The people I took it to thought they might be turn of the century Italian crystal rewired in the 40’s or later. “
