PICTURES DO NOT GIVE JUSTICE. This is and impressive, exceptional, monumental and extraordinary chinese gilt bronze oil lamp. Made during second half of XX century.Central body with the shape of a furious and magnificent dragon, and another smaller dragon on bowl. This bowl has been meticulously handmade with the body of the second dragon and a claw with a sphere emerge. It is a very old lamp so it shows signals of use. S ome parts have been welded on base, i suppose decades ago, but it does no affect its amazing and decorative impact and can be restored to perfection for an expert (see pictures number 8 and 9). Burner has all parts and it was never adapted to electricity, however needs attention (knob is locked).
Both highly detailed dragons have a beautiful expression with sulfide eyes and have been incredibly carved. Complete tall (including tubular shade): 39 inches. Tall excluding glass shade: 31.5. All defects not mentioned but visible in the pictures will be considered as described. If you have any question, do not hesitate to contact me.
