Lamp - modern or ancient?

(1/1)

tkonnova:
Hi all,

Ive got this lamp, not sure if it is authentic or not. Im pretty new to artifacts, my previous experience being only with coins.. Any help with attribution would be greatly appreciated =)

Thanks all!

slokind:
Coins are much easier (safer) than artifacts.  Lamps are the very devil.  Pat L.

Strobilus:
I strongly suspect your lamp is a modern Bulgarian copy (fabric, slip, handle and nozzle details, base, etc.) but it is impossible to give a definitive opinion of authenticity based only on the images in this case.
