help needed to identify lamp

Your lamp base originally was a Chinese vase. The pattern appeared in the Qing Guangxu period (1875-1908) and is decorated over a crackle glaze in a famille rose "Warring States" pattern with faux bronze bands and lion dog handles in an iron-based glaze. An apocryphal Ming base mark of "Made during the Chenghua Reign" (Cheng hua nian zhi - 成化年製) is incised on the same type faux bronze ground.

Despite somewhat similar decoration, the painting seen on your lamp base is about a generation past the Qing period, when porcelain painters were well trained in the traditional painting techniques exhibited in the pair of Guangxu era vases shown below from my collection.

Your example looks to date to circa the late second to third quarter of the 20th century.

Best regards,

Bill H.
