YOUR LAMP IS PURE ART DECO. I ALSO HAVE ONE. YOU DID NOT MENTION IT BUT SHE IS ALSO AN INSCENSE BURNER AND-IF THE PIECES ARE STILL THERE- A 'MOTION LAMP. THIS WOULD CONSIST OF A LIGHT BULP BLIP THAT IS POINTED ON THE END AND THE PIN WHEEL THAT TURNS FROM THE HEAT OF THE LAMP. i CAN EMAIL YOU A PICTURE AND BRIEF DESCRPTION OF OUR LAMPS I FOUND IN A BOOK ABOUT ART DECO.
