Product Descrption States: "This hand-crafted item and many others come from a third generation family run factory in mainland China. Their skills of hand-painting, hand-rubbed lacquering, and hand-tooling have been passed down for many generations. We are proud to support them in their quest to keep their age-old techniques alive for future generations. Many of the artists are hired out of semi-retirement to work from home training the next generation to become master craftsmen. These masters are highly respected in their craft and their culture which have survived through many Chinese dynasties and continue to produce valuable and desirable pieces for your home decor." Box and all lamp labels are very clearly marked "Made in Phillipines", which is a long way from China. Addtionally, lamp comes with a cheap in-line switch (not too durable) that hands behind our nightside table...would have preferred a normal bulb-base switch for a table lamp.
