Yes, it's an early 80s Taiwanese import lamp, solvent glitter. TLC of Hollywood was, I'm sure, the company marketing them here. I've seen them in black or steel-blue metallic bases. Base and cap have a diagonal cut.
i just paid 55 dollors for one, hope it arrives safe and sound. i have wanted a mini vintage glitter lamp for ages and this looked perfect. will add pics soon as i get it, looks like its in good condition just needs a good clean.
