This one is a mystery to me and I wonder if anyone out there knows what it is?
My Mom and Dad were antique dealers in Philadelphia in the 1950's and when they died in the 90's my sister and I inherited all the inventory from their business. It's taken me 10 years to unpack and go over everything which is stored in a building on our property. One of the things I came across recently is a brass hanging piece of Napoleon. I think it might have been an oil lamp??? a planter?? It's a beautiful piece made in four separate parts and welded or soldered together. They consist of two deeply cast sides and two separately cast faces. The faces (Napoleon) are soldered on to the two sides and the sides are soldered together so that they form an open topped triangular shaped piece. It measures 6 inches across the open top and about 7 1/2 inches from the open top to the tapered bottom. Four hooks are soldered to the inside corners and have 4 six foot chains which hang from a decorative piece which must be meant to hang from a ceiling.
