This is a gorgeous, Italian, hand made, alabaster, silhouette boudoir lamp. The small bulb is behind the lamp, and when lit, illuminates the wings, and silhouettes the hand carved alabaster ballerina. We would call her an angel, but she is nude. She may represent a contemporary celebrity of the time and place. She poses en point, or jumping, wearing nothing but a flowered belt around her waist. The scalloped wings are white, veined alabaster, 11" wide, 10" high, and 1/4" thick. We are using the small bright bulb it came with, a lower wattage, or colored bulb would look great. It has a 3" X 3" X 1" white marble base with a grey marble facade, to give it a little contrast. The bottom is inscribed "Made In Italy, 022". In excellent condition, but does have a crack at the dancer's ankles.
