This is a nice hand painted half doll but it’s a very nice old boudoir lamp. The porcelain doll has a simple face and is wearing a floppy pink hat and a white bodice with a large ruffled collar. One hand is raised to her neck and the other appears to be holding a closed fan to her neck. It is hard to read but at her waist it is incised Japan. The doll is attached to an oval metal frame that is cover with a sheer fabric. Over the base is the pleated dress of the same fabric. The front of the dress adorned with lace insets and pale salmon pink ribbon bows. A standard size light socket is attached at the top and an old silk covered cord with a bakelite plug comes out the back of the lamp where the doll attaches to the frame. It takes a standard base light bulb but a small size. The bulb shown will be included. I believe she was probably made in the 1930’s.
She measures about 7 ¼” tall and is very nice condition with minor wear. The dress has some frayed edges and some of the fabric on the metal frame has rotted as shown in the photos. It does work but obviously care should be taken when a hot bulb and old fabric are involved.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
