This beautiful belle in a bell-shaped skirt is a very unusual lamp by the German company of Galluba and Hofmann. Clearly more she was meant to be more a boudoir light than reading lamp, even though the lovely lady herself holds a book! The lamp is 12 inches tall and of excellent china.
The dress fits over a round metal ring, making it a real hoop skirt
And those shapely legs, gracefully standing with one slender foot forward, and ruffled undergarments are familiar to any collector of Galluba's fine fashion ladies. The unusual tan base is unique to Galluba's gorgeous girls.
