This lamp is absolutely stunning… it is elegant and speaks of Aristocracy! Rubbed gold colored finish on porcelain with very subtle hues of blue and violet. There is a multi-tiered base made of a brass colored plinth supporting four porpoise legs and another plinth block of gold glaze. Classic urn shape without the handles, with Greek key design at top of the lamp body. We found this unusual painted lamp shade that is suggestive of a persian rug, and has the violet and blue hues visible in the lamp. This shade gives this special Stiffel a new look all of it’s own. Amazingly, we also found a brass porpoise finial who was delighted to join his four friends down below!
