Hi, First I must apologise for the dust. We are in the middle of a house renovation and I remove 2 wall lights and the shade seen in the images(1 x wall & 1 x shade) They are made from glass and I think iron details. I believe that they are over 30 years old. I have had a look for marks and can't see any but the house was a manor house, converted in the 1950's so they may date back to the 60's... Sorry to be so vague. Helen

These are Italian caged glass wall lamps made in 1950 to 1960s, attributed to Murano, valued at 250 to 300GBP each.

Ohh that's amazing thankyou - where would you advise the best place to sell them?

Here are some great suggestions for selling online- GoAntiques.com, Truegether.com, Mercari.com, Wanelo.com,
Poshmark.com, Bonanza.com, Etsy.com, eBay, Pamono.com, and Chairish.com. For the UK, selency.uk,
loveantiques.com are good sites. For CANADA, kijiji.com and sellmystuffcanada.com are the most popular.

Facebook Marketplace is how most people post things for sale locally. Here are other local online
classifieds where the buyer picks up from you- Webstore.com, Varagesale.com (regional),
and Offerup.com (regional), and 5miles.com (local).

Use invaluable.com, liveauctioneers.com, or auctionzip.com and search their directory for an
auction house near you and consign to them if you don't want to do all of the work of
listing and dealing with sellers.

I hope this is helpful to you! Please click five stars when you are prompted, thanks!
