    Hello all! So the wife doesn't like the chandeliers in the new house and wants me to replace them. I think they're beautiful. Anyway they must go so was wondering if anyone knew what brand these are and their worth or any info?! I cannot find anything on the web believe it or not. The engraving plate reads "antiquities roadshow collection". See pics thanks for any help provided.

    Very nice, unusual shape for a hanging pendant lamp, could be anything from a genuine Louis Comfort Tiffany lamp, to a cheap Dale Tiffany lamp, or a modern Chinese knockoff. If it were genuine, I doubt it would have been included in the sale of the home - it could be worth tens of thousands; an imitation, from $50 up to high hundreds, perhaps. Some nice background information at https://www.cnbc.com/id/39652022, including a reference to an appraiser who you might be able contact for an evaluation: “Out of 100 emails I get, probably just 4 or 5 percent of them are authentic,” says Dennis Tesdell, a private Tiffany lamp broker and consultant who assess lamps through his website: https://antiquetiffanylamps.com/. Whatever you find, it's a beautiful lamp; put it on Craigslist at least.

    If it says "Antiques Roadshow Collection" on it, its not old. A quick google search shows that they are commonly marketed as lamps by Dale Tiffany. Seems to go for same price as any other Tiffany style lamp, $300-$600 new, depending on size, how many lights, etc.

    Although similar, it is definitely different.
    What is very similar, is the supporting members, which would make one think it may very well be made by the same company.

    You can pick up one of these lights at Home Depot for about $250. Personally, I love that look in a Craftsman Style home.
