Likely a vase converted into a lamp - set onto a brass plate which is on top of a green onyx stone, and sits on a brass filagree base. Intricate (presumed hand-painted) patterns--primarily coral and green--over a fine-grained crackle field pattern that is buff/off-white/beige (1 aficionado called it repousse, but I'm not an aficionado). Also some other colors sparingly used.
I did not try to polish patina of b. Rass filigree base and brass top plate. Stamp on base confirms Chinese origin, which I'm told was required for import somewhere around 1897. In amazing condition for vintage piece. No observed defects except chip on the onyx (clearly shown in final photo number 12).Does not seem to have compromised the stones structure. We never noticed it until I loosed the base to see if there were makers marks (and found the "Chinese" stamp). Original brass finial, I believe--a tad loose on the harp. It's never bothered us; didn't notice until taking pictures. Shade was not original; so, not included.
Appears to have been rewired. Twist knob switch at socket.14-1/2 to top of brass cap. 29 to top of finial. Lamp itself = 6.1 lbs. Rest assured will be packed well. Happy to answer questions if I can.
