Hello. This was in the attic of my house when I purchased it in 1998. It appears to be a vase lamp .It is porcelain. In pretty much original condition. The cord is two wire fabric covered. The plug is a small black mushroom cap style Arrow brand with fine line around the surface. I would say that one pull chain bulb socket is original and and one was replaced along the way.
one has a porcelain insulator inside and the other is plastic. The upper parts are brass and the base is some brass and some brass plated parts, it seems to be worn off some. There was no shade on it. It measures about 25.5 inches tall top of finial. the base is 6.75 inch dia. I am thinking it is of the twenties
or thirties era. The most interesting for me is the subject mater on the lamp. I have never seen another like it. Even in researching. I wounder who's home this lamp was in at that time when it was new. I still cannot decide if the picture is a lamination process or is painted, it does appear to have some brush strokes but not sure. Has anyone seen similar? or could say more about it . Thanks greatly
