Chinese Late Qing dynasty Guangxu period to early Republic period provincial pottery oil lamp with saucer base, long cylindrical tube and cup at the top, covered with a thick celadon colored glaze. The deeply recessed base is unglazed. 12 5/8” high by about 6 3/4” diameter. Early 20th century to possibly late 19th. This utilitarian piece shows clear signs of use. It is in generally good overall condition with a crude old repair at the side of the saucer base. From the private collection of a former American expatriate to Guangzhou and Beijing from 1983-1987.
