Hi Rex, can you tell me possible maker and/or value of my porcelain lamps. Appear to be japanese made. The cord plugin has maker mark trio and looks 50s/60s. Cant find any maker marks. Would you know where i might find them? Take off the green felt on base maybe?

Answer
From looking at the base they may also be from Europe. On these type of lamps sometimes the marking is on the bottom of the porcelain figure which means you'd have to take the lamp apart to check. Unfortunately, sometimes there will be no markings. You also search Ebay to find a similar lamp in which a mfg has been identified.

Thanks,
Rex
