|In fine working order, this Chinese carved hardstone lamp is of green quartz, with bronze mounts, carnelian insets, and cloisonne finial. Measuring 29" to the top of finial, the quartz body is 12 1/2" high, 5" wide, and 3 3/4" deep. The top can be removed to change the interior bulb, and fits tightly. The lamp has fixtures for two regular bulbs and has an old fabric shade in relatively good condition (the interior paper shade has some holes, seen in photo of the finial). Nice green color, with cream and brown striations in the stone, fine quality bronze work on the mounts. When all the lights are on, the bird appears lighter in color due to its translucence. PLEASE NOTE, UPDATE TO ITEM: 4-9-2012. Just noticed that bird on lid had been broken along fault lines in stone and reglued, so am amending condition to "repaired", and have adjusted the price as well.|
