    My grandpa gave me this old lamp he found, but it doesn't have and markings on it at all. I was wondering if anyone had any information on this lamp. If so, please share!

    Thanks!

      Probably 1880 - 1930 approx Meiji or taisho period due to no markings (newer items are usually marked or sometimes they have been made recently. I bet it's marked under that wooden base at the bottom if you can unscrew it easily.

      This pattern has been made from the Meiji period right up to today, if it looks old it usually is that is why I like to see age. I don't believe that was ever a lamp I would bet it was made into a lamp a later date, if you look it looks more like a vase. This is usually a good sign something has age due to being changed later in its life. It has been changed excellently and makes a really nice lamp. Myself I don't like this particular pattern but I like it, as it stands as a lamp.

      Looking at your pictures item does have age if you can unscrew that wooden base do so but you may find that there's a hole where the seal (markings) should be.

      put japanese satsuma into eBay and you will see lots of the pattern, I believe they call it Japanese Satsuma Moriage, I only know it as satsuma myself but believe that is the correct name even google it. I had some recently 9 Meiji/Taisho pieces and they sold for a nice few quid on ebay.
