Bought this little piece for 1 pound today in charity shop. It is a brass peacock standing in a tray surrounded by a crescent. The base screws off. I think it could be Indian. It stands around three inches tall. Any info would be much appreciatd. Two photos are attached
I found one on a site called " Dolls of India". It is called a five face oil lamp.
The bowl is filled with oil and wicks, then lit afire. Link says 1950s but I think it's newer, 1960s-80s. Cheap, India imports. Value $5.00. Not much call for it unless you like brass.
