This is a vintage boudoir lamp with a porcelain figural base on a metal plinth that dates to circa 1930's. Without a maker mark or country of origin stamp, who made this and where it is from cannot be definitively stated. It was likely produced in Japan for export and had a foil sticker label on it that has since been removed. On today's market, this can sell for a high of $40 - $60.
