George and Martha Washington porcelain lamp circa 1940s. Hand painted with real 22-24 K gold trim. These lamps are collector pieces and this one previously belonged to my 95 year old grandmother. The decorative figures on this porcelain lamp resemble George and Martha Washington but actually represent wealthy members of the king's court during the rule of French King Louis XV around 1765. The original paintings were from the French artist Jean - Honoré Fragonard (1732-1806). These lamps are no longer being produced and their values continue to rise. This one is in excellent shape. Ready to go.
