Elaborately carved Syrian lamp made approximately 1910. Two lamp sockets above and one in base, all with individual pull chains. Measuring 26" tall by 16" across and weighs about 9 pounds. These were popular throughout the Middle East and exported for use in Masonic Temples. Similar lamps are also made in Turkey and Egypt. A lamp like this takes several months for as entire families would work on making these lamps with each member having a specialty or two.
