Made of brass, copper,thin sheet metal, and cast iron
The beveled glass panel is 4x4 inches as is the curved lens
The overall height is 14 inches
And the interior appears to be tinned copper plating on stamped steel.
So does anyone have any idea what it came off of or who made it? Thank you for any information in advance.

does the candle have a spring under it or something? Looks like it would fizzle out purty quick if it didn't.
