This is mostly speculation, but I believe your lamp base may be Chinese, a circa 3rd quarter, 20th century product of one of the Hong Kong or Macao ornamentation factories, attempting to emulate a Fukagawa 'Chocolate Imari' item. The 'mon'-style roundels help the intended effect but the brownish glaze seems to have proven hard to control. The octagonal and/or hexagonal shape also strikes me as something seen more in Chinese pieces during the 60s & 70s. Here are links to gotheborg.com images of similar features and forms produced in Macao at that time. The second item had a label of 'Made in Hong Kong', though its Jiaqing mark is firmly linked to Macao.
