    Good Day Everyone!

    Saved this pair of lamps from a trip to the landfill. Can someone help me identify these? They look Japanese. Are they? How old could they be? Actually made in Japan or a knock-off of some sort? Do these lamps have a name more descriptive than "a ceiling light"? Thank you!

    Looks like these are 3 stand-alone lamps. Does anyone know what type of bulb these sockets are for, and I can buy them?

    Looks like those are Chinese Zitan lanterns missing their painted glass panels and possibly some carved elements.

    @Any Jewelry thank you for the name: "Zitan" will help narrow down searches
