Chinese Immortal Root Wood Carved Table Lamp
Chinese Immortal Hand Carved Root Wood table lamp. He is intricately carved and holding a fish . It think is was a craving that was turned into a table lamp later on. It is mounted on a wood base that was probably added later too. The whole piece is 17" high. There is an age crack in the wood at the bottom of the carving ( not the base) but that is typical of old Chinese wood carvings. The eyes have been painted. The teeth details are not painted. On the underside of carving there is a small panel that has a Chinese Character signature of some sort. The lamp works fine and the wiring appears to be fine too. Other then what has been mentioned the condition is excellent for age.
