While waiting for some friends to get home, I took a walk in their neighborhood. I think the next day was refuse pickup day. I found this in someone's garbage while on my walk. I thought it was just too nice to go to the trash dump. It is pottery about 7" high and 7" in diameter. It looks like part of a lamp, but not sure if there were other pottery components or not since I found it like you see it. For the past 15-20 years, I've just displayed it as an art piece on a carved wooden stand. It has value to me as both a piece of art and a memory piece commemorating my visit to my friends' home. I am guessing it is American pottery, but maybe one of the pottery experts on CW can tell me more about it. I may someday turn it back into a lamp, though I have recently acquired a Stiffel brass lamp fetish.
