Can I paint a china table lamp

Have redecorated the room, the lampshade, which is white, is fine, but the base is the wrong colour.
Looking on line it seems I would have to fire the base if I painted it with the special paint which is not possible as the fitments are fixed to it. How long would it last if I just slapped on some emulsion or oil based paint (if that is still available)?
It's a seldom used guest room.

I painted a boring cream ceramic base with gold craft paint a while ago and it still looks great!

Hmmm, gold would look ok so might do that.
Thanks.
