Any markings on the bottom or back?
I didn't notice any markings at first glance. There is felt/fabric covering the (hollow) bottom.
thx for your help
My Mom had a pair of lamps of similar worksmanship. Just one figure each, but the same style. The pierced decorative brass base on yours is exactly the same. I recall asking her if they were antique, and she said no (That was a while back! More than a while). She said she had bought them right after her marriage. She was married in 1950. So I would date them to 1950 or shortly before.
