This Vintage Faience Pottery Lamp is executed in the Italian style of Capo-Di-Monte and was manufactured here in Canada 1979. It is signed, dated with the country of origin marked on the bottom which is evident when the lamp was disassembled some time ago. When disassembled during the rewiring process, I do recall it having being dated and signed by an artist with Canada written on it as well.

The lamp itself is very colorful faience pottery executed with a double handle in the urn shape. The lamp depicts Roman figural and human-like lion's heads at the base of each handle. Garlands of flowers with blue ribbon bows are located at the top and bottom of the urn shape stem. The glaze has rich hues of luster which give the other colors bounce. The lamp sits on a brass and marble base.
