The bottom alabaster panel is stamped "GERMANY". This very imaginative and intriguing piece would make not only a good conversation piece but also a night light. It features three metal penguins with molded "ivorine" beaks standing/waddling/walking down a small snowy embankment. Each penguin is 4-3/4"h x 2-1/1"w. Overall, including the penguins, the light is 9"h x 14-1/2"l x 4"d. Interior lighting is provided by two small light bulbs in a fixture on an electric cord that runs out the back of the bottom panel. We have noted that the beak of the middle penguin has been restored, the bottom panel has been reglued in the middle, and an original end panel is missing. This most original artwork light was probably made between the two world wars.
