You are looking at an absolutely stunning cream color ceramic lamp base/body, which is covered in adorable raised cherubs. Although it's not majolica, it is highly glazed with the look of majolica. Please note there isn't a metal base, only the metal top which features two cherubs. As you can see, the cherub top includes a bright gold stem topper, which is glued on.
There are four double cherub scenes around the lamp base; holding holds, kissing, and two other cherub scenes where they appear to be dancing. There are four single cherubs, who are holding flowers. Surrounding the bottom of the lamp body is a design of leaves; the top has a scrollwork design.
The top hole is ½" X ½" round; the bottom hole is 1 ½" X 1 ½" round. The entire base is approximately 3 X 3".
The overall condition is quite good, with the following imperfections to note: there are some small chips here and there; one is on the arm of a single cherub (see pic). They are barely noticeable due to the tone on tone color. You would need to look very closely in order to see them. There is a blue ink line on one cherub (see pic), which may come off. There's stress or firing "lines" which are original to the piece; they are smooth to the touch; you can see a few in my photos.
The middle of the lamp body is 28" in circumference; 11 ¾ around the neck & bottom base. The body is approx. 12" tall; the cherubs top adds an additional 6 3/8". From cherub knee to knee, the top is 5" wide. The metal cherub's base is 2 1/8" X 2 1/8.
The cherubs topper has an uneven darkened bronze look to it & is probably pot metal. The very top piece is bright gold metal, which is newer & would have been part of a lamp "kit; this is the way I purchased it. You may decide to spray this top piece to match the base you will need to purchase.
Although you'll need to purchase a base, you at least have a gorgeous lamp body to work with; you will love it! You could also use this as a display piece, it's that pretty.
