We love the white birds painted on the yellow glazed like surface of this mid century wood urn. It appears the urn was transformed into a lamp body at some point in time with bottom and top holes. We see it displayed as an urn or decorative object (as shown.) But maybe you will choose to have your lamp technician add a base, wire and a socket to create a one of a kind lamps. Vibrant yellow with white birds surround the body of the piece. The glaze/paint has some show through of the wood brown. A few small crazing areas o the surface as well as minor surface wear.
