    I bought this lamp from a swap meet vendor in New Jersey, with the thought of restoring it like I did my clock in the 4th picture. The problem is that the lamp, aside from the alabaster shade, is one piece. The bench is glued to the black base. Her ivorine face over the years has been exposed to heat which caused it to shrink and turn orange, it is missing a small triangular piece at the bottom where it goes into her blouse. When Ivorine gets in this condition it flakes away easily which may explain her missing right hand. The alabaster globe is in excellent shape although not apparent in the pictures it has a wavy floral etching on it. The bench she is sitting on has two butterflies, one on each end (see 2nd and 3rd pictures).

    The lamp is one foot in height, 9" long, and 4.5 in depth. The base and bench have nicks and fleabites on them. The figure like the one on the clock is 9" in height.
