This is a large porcelain lamp with leaves painted on the face and a signature. It has a porcelain base and wonderful gilt trim that is wearing in some sections. This lamp is older with a plug that could be mid-century or earlier. It presents incredibly well with an added white shade. It measures 33 inches tall from base to final and 5 inches by 5 inches wide. The lamp's harp is old and unattractive with deep oxidation, but could be replaced. The signature is a little difficult because it appears to be written with a brush.
