While FW used the dragon lamp in marketing (and it is loosely related to the dragon suspension bracket they sold for fans), the chances that FW made that lamp are fairly slim. It would have very likely been made by one of the many decorative lamp companies at the time, in a decorative form that was popular for the era.It does look like it was designed to hold the fan though the back support counters the weight of the fan hanging off the socket.
