Large 19th to Early 20th C Chinese Polychrome Porcelain Vase Lamp
This a truly stunning polychrome porcelain vase was converted to lamp w/ hardwood stand attached and brass fixtures. The vase is thinly potted based on the weight compared to the size of the lamp. The shade is cream colored silk with orange intricate border at top and bottom. The vase is decorated with a scene of women socializing and another peeking around the side of house. Thought to be 19th century possible Republic. The vase is a form and style very common to the period. I did not attempt to view the foot rim to avoid causing irreparable damage.
The gilt is nearly completely worn from the handles and rim. There are no visible chips and no hairlines. No discernible repairs.
The lamp is 35 inches tall with the shade. The vase is 18 inches tall with the wood stand attached. The lamp is operational.
