This is a lovely piece.. I think it possibly a Chippendale ( have seen several like this). The orginal color was white, however it has been repainter to look like bamboo. The item has minor imperfections. I does work. and is a great find. Feel free to contact to make arrangements to view item. I saw this lamp listed onine , One King Lane for $1,100.00 and it was reduced to 700.00.
