Such a beauty! This table lamp is Satsuma dating to the 1920's or earlier. The earthenware pottery may have been before the lamp was assembled. The Satsuma is very fine and is from the Meiji period, Japan. This lamp features a temple jar design that is original to the lamp. It is one solid piece, not a lid that has been glued on. So it was originally intended this way. The 9 1/2" porcelain part is a cream earthenware ground with maple leaves, gold gilt and a gorgeous design of chrysanthemums around the base and shoulder in the diaper band areas. The porcelain lamp sits on a carved wooden base that has been rebuilt. You can tell that this lamp was well-loved which lends to the charm of the piece. Not at all distracting. The shade is a newer one that is very complimentary to the overall design of the lamp as it has an organic motif as well. It is made from a cranberry raw silk with a raised "flocked" leaf pattern. The porcelain base is 9 1/2" high and the overall height with the finial is 24 1 /2". The finial is round and crem colored and matches the color of the Satsuma. There is an old cloth covered cord and an old Art Deco bakelite type plug. Really a gorgeous lamp worthy of many different styles of interior decor. I have not seen another like this. I have many more photos available.
