Oriental lamp base

This looks Persian perhaps or Indonesian - don't think it's Chinese. Any thoughts.

Looks like it's signed Zeli. One of the Delft Gouda potteries, maybe?

I can see the Delft now - looks to have a bit of age to it.

The lid looks like it was once separate from the body and has been glued in - could it have been converted from a vase?

It's certainly a vase shape but I suspect it was made to be a lamp because the lid looks like it belongs to it and there's no base; you wouldn't have those if it was meant to be used as a vase.
