Yes, she sits atop a wire electric lamp and her dress was her lamp shade. The hand painting on this doll is superb with her wistful look and beautifully coiffured ash blonde hair. She even has softly painted nails. The dress was made recently of lace and roses and adds to the romance and beauty of the doll. She stands almost 11 inches high and the diameter of her wire base is 5 inches. Of course we do not recommend you wire her for electricity but she would look pretty lighted up. Maybe a battery powered light would work. If you have a pin cushion doll collection this would make a beautiful variation for it.
