It has #425 scratched in back on base. It's 20" tall and 10" wide at base. It seems to be a kind of ceramic painted bronze. The globe is green with lines in it. My 82 yr old step-dad remembers this in his Mom's home when he was young.It was a lamp, but the wires have been cut. I wouldn't try to rewire because the socket seems to be embedded in the ceramic. makes a pretty decorator piece anyway. Thanks for any help.

    It is chalkware. During the depression, they made many of the figural lamps out of plaster instead of metal.

    Thank you, Leigh! Thats a start. I'll look up chalkware and see what I find.
