12"x7" ceramic oriental lamp on black wood base. Lovely green ceramic pierced motif with beige paper parchment liner. I don't know how old this is. Anyone recognize this? My guess is 1950's.

I bought this around 1993 from a thrift store in San Diego so it is at least 20 yrs old and the cord and switch looks to be redone in the 70's or 80's so now adding a few more years on. I will post a photo of the cord and plugs later.

    Thanks Nadia - color is true and I believe celadon is a little lighter and more on a dull greyish side.
