A friend of mine who is also a dealer showed me this and asked me how much I thought it was worth. I didn't see the signature so the first things I asked "Is it Lalique"? He said no but he was going to try to sell it at his shop for $80. I could feel the weight and see the quality and asked 'Would you take $40" and he agreed. I later saw the signature with a magnifying glass so even though I didn't know it was worth 250, I knew it was was worth 40

I love old lamps but because I like them so much, sometimes I tend to over-value them. I had found evidence to suggest this would be worth as much as $1,000. After advertising it in the store and on eBay for many months with no offers, I finally sold it to another dealer for just $100. Sitting on the river and fishing is fun but at a certain point, we have to cut bait and go home.
