This novelty pirate figural lamp (circa late 1920`s early 30`s), has an alabaster base that lights up, with etchings of ships around the sides. The pirate has a cellulose face and a spelter body. The alabaster base has some wear around the top lip (with dirt), but no significant chips and no cracks. It`s been re-wired with cloth covered cord retaining the old in-line switch. Makes a great night light for a child`s room or a man cave. The base is etched Made in Italy on the left hand top quadrant of the bottom of the base as pictured. The lamp stands 12 1/2" tall, the figurine is 7" tall and the base is 5" across. Thanks for looking!
