I have a brass lantern chandelier with etched red glass from my mom’s house..definitely an antique.

Would anyone know something about it and its value – and where I might sell it?
So appreciated.[attachment]red ;antern 3.jpg[/attachment]

Lighting in general is almost impossible to identify unless it has a makers name !! Even then it is difficult to say for sure !! Problem is that only in very rare instances are all the pieces made by one mfr !! Normally the pieces are ordered according to the company`s design and are simply assembled by the company and tagged with their company name !! This holds true even today !! I saw nothing in your pics that looked as if this fixture is a conversion so I think it was always electric !! From the size you stated it was likely an entry way/foyer fixture originally !! Hopefully we can at least get an idea of where it is from !!
Another bit of information for you since you said your mother bought it at least 50 years ago !! Back during the 1970`s and 80`s anything labeled Antique was bringing top dollar here in the U.S.!! Buyers were going to the UK and purchasing almost anything that looked old and shipping them back here for sale !! I had my shop then and frequently bought some of them !! They were paying pennies on the dollar for furniture lighting and other things !! Quite a lucrative tactic back then !! Thats why I think your fixture may be of French origin since it is just across the channel from the UK !! It is not unusual to find items from France in England !! Let me cross post this and get other opinions on it !!

That is really helpful! I never thought French, for some reason. So there is another avenue to explore. I don’t know where my mom found it, but she had a wonderful eye and dealt with fine antique dealers. She bought it at least 50 years ago, probably more.
Sadly, she is not here to ask..

Do you have any history about the lamp ?? Where your parents got it and what was told when they bought it ?? I am not sure and no way to Identify it without a makers name but I do not think it was American made !! My feeling is that it was possible made in France !! I have a friend on another forum that collects French antiques !! I am going to get her opinion on it !!

I am in Atlanta
This is a photo of the wires from the top.
It was installed as a ceiling hanging fixture until about 3 years ago. This is what the electrician gave me.
The lantern part is about 11″ high and 7″ square
