This lamp features a wonderful vase decorated with small high relief porcelain flowers. The lamp is surrounded by these small high relief flowers and in the front there is a hand painted picture of a young lady holding a dove in her hand. The hand painted scene is also surrounded by an oval high relief porcelain flowers.. Also on the neck of the vase there are some larger high relief porcelain flowers and one high relief porcelain flower at the base of her skirt.
This item was made either in the 19thC or early 20thC. This lamp is most likely french and is a copy of the type of decoration used by Meissen in the 18thC. This lamp is a very high quality item and all the tiny flowers are in perfect condition with no missing flowers.
The oval high relief porcelain decoration has a couple of small chips and the two larger high relief flowers has small chips also. Also, at the bottom along side the large flower at the base of her dress, there are chips to the brown leaves. This is typical on this kind of high relief porcelain decorations.
The hand painting is not signed and if the vase at one time had a makers mark it is probably not there since the vase was turned into a lamp in the early part of the 20thC. This is a quality item.
The vase alone is about 10 inches high and the lamp is about 19 inches high to the bulb area. Any questions please email me.
