This type of lamp was very much in demand in England towards the late 1800s, early 1900s. The shells were engraved by the etchers of Torre de Greco, south of Naples. In this case,the lamp has a beautiful engraving of Gulf of Naples with Vesuvius in the background. Typical image with Pine and view from Posillipo.
The lamp is in working condition and complete with cable and switch. It has a small plaster repair under the pine which is probably made to fix a small hole.
