60” High x 14” Wide at the Base 

Price upon request

This finely cast, elegant pedestal lamp depicts mythical creatures on the base, cranes in high relief on the stem areas and birds among rocks and trees on the upper section. Each section divided by elaborate patterns.  Rarely produced in this size.  The lamp dismantles into four pieces. Not shown, there is an original lift-out kerosene or oil container with a large drilled hole for conversion to electricity. The finish is very good to excellent, a soft bronze glow, no denting, minor scuffing as shown in the last image and occasional small corrosion spots.
