Sunshine or sunflower yellow make for a delightful mid-century lamp! Its large ceramic vase shaped base wears a beautiful yellow glaze with brown and black mottling and portions of lava glaze scattered about. The curvaceous vase body sets on a black painted metal base. It is topped with a black hard pleated and tapered shade which seems to suit the lamps shape well but is not new. You may have the shade or not. Just let us know when making your purchase. This incredible lamp will brighten up a dark corner even without turning it on! You need to make it yours.
