Lamp- Antique Porcelain Figural Bird Lamp Germany Night Light

Wonderful lighted porcelain bird figurine was made in Germany probably during the Art Deco era. I've seem other similar bird lamps glazed in the same colors that had factory markings or paper labels, but this one is impressed in the clay with only the word Germany and a number: 3780? last digit isn't legible. I'm not sure what type of bird it is... kingfisher? woodpecker? It has a yellow cockade... probably a bird indigenous to Germany. These unique lamps were used as night lights and/or perfume lamps to create an exotic atmosphere in boudoir or bedroom. He's sitting on a cluster of open ended twigs and since the light fixture is of the clip-in variety, he could also be used as a flower frog if so desired. It's really great looking in a darkened room. The figure glows as do the opentwig ends. Put a dab of perfume on the bulb and the heat will allow the scent to waft out of these openings too. I've had these lamps in with my perfume bottle collection for over 25 years. A hairline crack runs from front tip of yellow cockade to top of lightbulb opening, more noticeable in the yellow than the rest. Two small areas of glaze loss on back show up as white: one is to the right of the bulb opening and one is at lower left of tail. In very good condition otherwise. He's 9.5" high and 5" wide from tail to front foot.
