Offering a wonderful, antique, Hungarian, hand-made clay, figural lamp base.
This pottery is a young girl picking the petals off of a flower, in a loves me, loves me not, scenario. She is beautifully glazed, and hand painted, and her long arching hair braid forms a handle of sorts by which to lift her.
The top of her hat has a hole for the lamp stem and it measures 1/2" in diameter. This figurine can also be used as a candlestick for a slender candle.
The figurine measures 6 3/4" in height and has a base diameter of 5 1/2".
Made in Hungary, impressed on the inner base.
This is quite an old piece, brought into this country before WWII, but I find no chips, cracks, or repairs.
