Cherub Lamp: A Find and A Predicament

I found this cherub lamp at St Vincent de Paul last year when they were having a lamp sale, all lamps half off. So this beauty was $10 and I thought hey, why not?
It has taken me as long to look up a shade for it, because I could tell that the finial fastener on the top was not original and I wanted to see what it was really supposed to have.
Boy was I surprised.

Who knew that the top shade alone would be $200?! Now I have some serious considering to do. Should I reunite the pair to that tune? Not so sure!

Here’s them put together, listed for $400!
