Two century-old, cast-iron, outdoor lamps specially designed for Canada's famous Casa Loma, built by Sir Henry Pellatt in the 1900s, were found in a St. Catharines, Ontario, self-storage facility. If authentic, the lamps, fashioned with the image of dragons, could be worth $5,000 to $10,000 each, The Standard reported. Antique store owner Leon Perel was guided to the storage unit by a St. Catharines woman who said she inherited the tall iron lamps and five other light fixtures. The fixtures were bought at auction in 1920 by an early relative. For more information, visit www.forumgalleries.com.
