A superb Hexagonal Lamp Base by Herend in their 'Rothschild' bird and butterfly pattern. Colourful handpainting with 24 carat gold trims against gleaming white porcelain. Each panel is beautifully handpainted with birds and butterflies with exquisite detailing and the top surface is also decorated with butterflies.

It probably dates from the 1950's and the wiring as been cut and left ready for rewiring for safety. There are brass lamp fittings.

In excellent condition with no damage other than a fine hairline in one of the side panels which is hard to spot, it looks more like a crazing line. No wear to the gilding.

This Lamp Base is approximately 26cm 10.25" tall. The sides are straighter than they appear in the photos.

I am also listing another Lamp Base with the same shape but with the Green Chinese Bouquet pattern. I can send both lamp bases together for £13.00 in the U.K. and £39 to Europe. (These Lamp Bases are too large for the cheaper 'small packets' rate, hence the higher shipping cost).

Thank you for looking!
