This beautifully carved early 20th century lamp takes the form of a seated, reading figure of Lohan with a tiger. The eyes and teeth are given an extra dimension with inlaid ox bone adding interest and realism. The original carved base is a separate piece and shaped for the figural carving to sit on it perfectly. All original, including the bakelite light fitting. Super condition with rich patina to the wood. A rare piece, worthy of a place in any Asian based collection.
Please note that the wiring is original and will need checking or updating.
