Dear Jennifer,
Thank you for your submission, what cute boudoir lamp! You have an early 20th century Chinese porcelain baluster vase which has been mounted as a lamp. Your piece is painted with lotus blossoms and with garlands of greenery. It's interesting to note that on the metal base is a band of reticulated "shou" or "good luck" characters. It's a sweet piece, at auction $30USD, perhaps $40USD. In a retail setting with the shade, probably closer to between $80USD and $100USD depending upon market tastes and interest.
Thank you for taking the time to submit, if you have any follow up questions, please let me know.

Sincerely,

Erin-Marie
