It could be from India. I just made a best guess based upon other items I've seen in the past of similar quality construction and materials, but India is certainly a candidate as well. That Eastern Mediterranean/Asia Minor design pool has quite a reach, the lineage of artistic influences can get murky (thank you Alexander the Great, the Moors and the Ottoman Empire), couple that with the whole India/Pakistan current practice of "if you want us to make cheap copies of something old/antique/historical, we'll do it for a good price," and well, you know...

Even the Pier Ones are cooler in Southern California! Who would have thought?
I just looked at Bruddah Bear's link...I guess I did okay price wise for $10. I think it looks okay in the bar for now. By no means do I think it is the coolest tiki lamp. I'd much prefer some of tiki skip's lamps.
Yeah, I only posted the other lamp as an example of a similar lamp made in Mexico. Price wise, you can find more pricey ones as well as less expensive ones, I'm sure. You didn't do bad at all for $10. Mainly I was just trying to give Carl an idea of what it is and how he might locate something similar.
The space is coming along nicely, Jim.
