I bought this lovely lady lamp this morning and would like to know who made her if possible. Thanks Pat.

Best place to find these is Pamela's web site link attached, I think it's called Rotterdam but can't remember maker but it will be there.

Hi Pat,
congratulations on your Rotterdam lamp base! the shade presumably is not Walther I am afraid. Rotterdam base used to carry a Rotterdam bowl like this:

without 3 feet but with one 'cork'

Hi Pamela. I am wondering if the lamp base was sold in England without the original shade because my friend has an identical lamp base with an identical shade. She got hers about 5 years ago.  It seems very odd.

it is so sad that Tony Hayter does not reply!
He knew ALL about these!
Your shade looks like a replika really - but matching in every respect nearly
