Offering for sale a lovely old lamp. It features what appears to be a wood statue of Venus De Milo, aka Aphrodite of Melos, one of the most famous statues in the world, the original artist unknown, and the maker of this statue and lamp also unknown. She is mounted on a wood base painted black, and has the old brass or bronze lamp parts extending from her back. The lamp measures 30" tall including the harp, 22" tall without the harp, and the goddess herself is 12 & 1/4" tall. In overall good condition, some paint missing from the base, but there are no cracks or repairs to the lamp . The base at bottom is 4" square. The quality of this statue is very fine. She may have been "born" as a lamp, or may have started out as a statue and later converted, but if the latter it was done by a professional. Original cord still attached. This came from the estate of a very wealth medical doctor, he kept her in his office. She was without shade when i bought her, so no shade is included.
