I inherited this lamp from my grandparents. It is approximately 34" in height and sits on a green marble pedestal. The pedestal rotates and is 42" in height. She is missing a finger on her right hand. The story is that two of my uncles were having a mock sword fight, got over zealous and chopped it off! She has been carved from alabaster (face, hands and breasts) and marble. Supposedly alabaster will darken when exposed to the oils in your hands. That probably explains why her breasts are somewhat darker. Those naughty uncles again! The piece is signed "F. Vichi /Vichy Florence.
