This type of 1940s kitchen or child's wall lamp is usually found with a ceramic fruit or fruit basket base, but this one features a traditional Dutch boy and girl couple about to kiss below an arch of yellow tulips. It's cold painted in bright primary colors of red, yellow, and green. Extending from the glazed ceramic wall plaque is an arched lamp with white Bakelite socket and switch. The lamp is designed for a clip-on shade which is not present.
The light works fine as you can see. The Dutch kids plaque measures 7-1/2 inches high by 5 inches wide. The lamp extends just under 7 inches from the wall, overall height to the top of the socket is about 10-1/4 inches. There is some wear to the cold paint as shown and a little scuffing to the yellow enamel paint of the extension bar.
