Hi all

I recently acquired these three lamps, and was hoping someone would be able to assist me in determining whether or not they are genuine. I appreciate this may be difficult to do through a photo, but if there are any clear red flags I'd love to know.

Cheers

I'm afraid all three lamps are crude fakes made for the tourist trade.
