This is almost 12" tall from the table, about 11" wide. It probably dates from around 1930, possibly before. It has a hinged bottom where the bulb is. It says " Danse de Lumiere" embossed in the glass on the lower left front. What do I have?

    Beautiful piece of nouveau, the fabric draping from her arms like a waterfall.

    perhaps Art Nouveau made by Lalique french maker of glass and bronze lamps 1940s?

    I have this also, but not the light base. Where does one begin to look for a base?

    Also, I wanted to say to dll...This statue is made of Vaseline glass, which in my estimation makes it that much rarer. If you put a black-light on it, it will fluoresce a bright glowing green color.

    What an amazing find. I have an Antiques appraisal book that I look through quite often to help me learn to identify items. I seen a pink one like this in the book. I came with a very nice appraisal. I have my eye out for one of these haha. Very pretty.

    Good chance it's LALIQUE. Does it have R. Lalique France written etched into it anywhere? There were copies of his work done so it could be a copy - the way to tell is if the mould is highly defined - the shape of her figure nicely defined by the shape of the glass. Copies weren't so well moulded - defined.

    I can guarantee you it is not Lalique. You may be thinking of Lalique's Suzanne.
    If you go to http://rlalique.com/Sections/AuctionItems/rene-lalique-auctions.php?Item_Num=2086 you will see a wonderful example of this piece. What you have is very nice lamp that is inspired by Lalique's Suzanne by the McKee Company as shown in the first comment by Savoychina1. If you go to http://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/2597698 you can see one similar without the metal base that sold at auction for $650. If you go to http://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/138923 you can see the Lalique version with the metal base that sold for $25,000. Compare the two figures, the hands, legs, the drapes. I am sure you will agree that this one is McKee.

    I've just noted that this lamp appears on the Riedel page of glass-wiki:
