    I'm sorry all I have is a black and white picture. This lamp was in a picture of my Aunt, Ulla Henry, that was taken in the 1950s. I think it is a very cool lamp and would appreciate it if someone could tell me what kind of lamp it is, including a brand name or trademark. It looks to be between 24 and 30 inches tall.

      What colour is the lamp .. and is it pottery?

      Sorry, I don't know what color the lamp was since all I have is the black and white photo. I'm going to a family reunion of my aunt's family in a couple of weeks and I'll show the picture to everyone and see if any of the older folks remember the lamp.
      I can't tell if the lamp is ceramic. The shiny "medallion" in the middle seems to be metal, as does the painted design below the medallion.

      Pretty lamp. Wondering if it is Bitossi or similar

      This is Laurabeth7 again. Since I posted this picture 2 months ago I have seen this type of lamp again, on the '90s TV show Everybody Loves Raymond. It is the table lamp next to the couch in Frank and Marie Barone's living room. In color, the lamp is a creamy white with a beautiful metallic gold medallion. I've checked websites for this show but their lists of props do not include this lamp.
