World Organization of China Painters
The World Organization of China Painters (WOCP) is a non-profit group dedicated to the appreciation and enrichment of the fine art of painting on porcelain. On January 17, 1962, Pauline A. Salyer started a china painting organization in the state of Oklahoma. In April 1967, she founded the World Organization of China Painters. One of the many objectives of the WOCP is to preserve a collection of fine hand painted porcelain. The collection serves to educate and deepen the appreciation of this fine art for posterity. The Organization publishes a bimonthly magazine, "The China Painter". It features educational material, colored photos of hand painted porcelain by members and photos of state and country porcelain exhibits on display in the Museum. The magazine serves as a communication network for members providing information about states, clubs, china shows and conventions.
I purchased this lamp to replace the same lamp I've had for 20 plus years. I love it! I can use the same heavy base and extra lens. The 7" lens is the best! I hope I get another 20+ years out of this one.
