Probably the best chinese dragon you can find in all the internet and the most fabulous i have seen. Made during second half of XX century. Central body with the shape of a furious and magnificent dragon, and another smaller dragon on bowl. This bowl has been meticulously handmade with the body of the second dragon and a claw with a sphere emerge. It is a very old lamp so it shows signals of use.Burner has all parts and it was never adapted to electricity, however needs attention (knob is locked). Both highly detailed dragons have a beautiful expression with sulfide eyes and have been incredibly carved. Complete tall (including tubular shade): 39 inches. Tall excluding glass shade: 31.5.
