This electric genie look lamp in black and gold colors with a splash of red is really retro in its look. The lamp base is shaped almost like an Aladdin's lamp with sharp angles. Made of plaster this lamp has two gold sprays of branches and leaves pained on it with two small red dot buds. The open handle is smooth except for a slight indent on the top part of the handle which is under the shiny paint and glaze. The bottom of the base is unpainted unglazed with a piece of green felt over the hole. The neck of the base has a metal gold look with some tarnishing. This lamp is 9 inches wide and 10 inches tall and 5 inches wide. Shipping weight is 3 pounds. As with any electrical piece this should be checked for safety as I have no knowledge of these matters. I see no nicks or breaks in its electric cord .which is fed from a small hole in its base. The lamp does work.
