A small oil lamp representing Laxmi, the goddess of wealth and beauty. Laxmi is also the consort of Lord Vishnu, the protector of the world against destruction. The casting is very precise with a patina showing obvious signs of great age, probably from beginning of 20th century. Notice some old accidents on the stand. This figure is from South India. Height is 3 1/3 inches (8.5 cm ).
