I am not able to find any markings on the item. The top and bottom light up. The bottom lights up like a night light. The plug says Leviton Pat Pending and is a non-polarized plug. It seems to be a Chinese Pierced Porcelain Lamp from sometime between 1900-1940 with a silk shade.

I would be very grateful to anyone that can possibly tell me the history on this. The specific year it may be from. Thank you so much for your assistance in advance my friends if not no big deal. Peace.... : )

    Is your asian lamp on Ebay right now? If not, there's one identical w/o the shade and fittings going for $300+ right now (4-7-11).

    Thanks for the post Mekei. It is very much appreciated. No I do not have this lamp for sale and it is not on Ebay. It is good to finally find out something about this. I am so grateful to you for this information. Just to make sure. The link to the Ebay auction below is the one you are speaking of right??

    It also looks like the one for auction is a little bit of a different variation/design then mine.

    That's the one! Yours looks in better shape (IMHO) but I'm no expert. At least it gives you some potential info on what you possess. I think your lamp is delightful and hope you keep searching for more clues.
