From my personal collection, this lamp sits in the entry to our home.  I have a thing for lamps and this particular one is my all-time favorite.


Acquired from a Palm Springs estate sale a few years back.  The bronze urn was converted to a lamp in the early 1930s . . .  a standard practice for vases and urns from that era.  The urn sits on a traditional Chinese carved wooden stand . . .  forming the base.  The urn might be from the late 1800s.


Included is a silk shade that has a gold and sea foam (light tint of green) coloring.  Quite unique but really complements the lamp.


New wiring, plug and socket.  There are two barely-noticeable dimple dents, but hey, if I were over 115 years old, I would probably have a few dents too!


This item has sold.  Thanks M!
