Old lamp, more photos
Peter, my curiosity got the better of me, so I dismantled the lamp. Do these photos suggest any more information? Does it seem to be Chinese? Do the markings on the bottom make any sense to you? All I know about this vase/lamp is that it is at least 80 years old. Thank you for any help you can offer?
Peter, I know this probably is not Chinese, but perhaps you can offer some advice or tell me how I might identify this piece? It appears to be a vase that was made into a lamp. It has been in the family over 80 years. From the small hole in one close-up, you can see that it must be made of clay, since underneath the glaze it shows red. I find no marks anywhere and am loathe to dismantle the lamp in an effort to find something. Thanks so much!
