These are 1940 -1950's era porcelain lamps made in Japan

for import to the United States. They are intended to imitate

the popular German porcelain figurines of the 1800's. This type of lamp with

heavy gold and very rounded eyes is common from Japan and Italy during this period. The

lamps have a value of $75 to $100 for the pair (if they do not need to be rewired).
Some sites that I recommend for selling are,,, Ebay and
You can also go to or and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.
