i have had this lamp in the shop at sk3tchbook! for a while. i think she is amazing. she used to be in our bedroom, but was just a bit too feminine for john. i wanted to put her in my studio, but counter space is very very precious in there, so i opted for overhead lighting. today i added her to my etsy shop. i am hoping someone in the world will see her an recognize her glamness!! she is ceramic, maybe porcelain. she has gloved hands and pink (yes, pink!) hair in an up do. i made her skirt with embroidered linen fabric. underneath is the original crinoline she came with. her original skirt is long gone. over her head is a squarish cloth shade with a crystal finial. she works great. one bulb in the shade, and one in her skirt. i usually don't light her skirt...just cautious. the wiring is original but seems sound. for extra protection, some people may consider re-wiring.
