A beautiful pair of Japanese bronze oil lamps from c.1880 now converted to electricity.
Finely cast and detailed bronze with high relief impressive dragons, kites, birds, trees and fruit.
One vase is wrapped with a kite featuring a mythical dragon chasing a bird in the sky, the other vase has three birds amongst trees and fruit.
Add an element of oriental design into your home. These would look great flanking a sofa or even used as bedside lights.
Great condition for its age. We have just had this re-wired, it is in good working order.
Fully rewired using 3 core braided fabric cable with new switched lamp holder (B22 Bayonet, bulb not included), UK 3 pin plug and PAT inspected
Please note that these are not a perfect pair, the stepped top is slightly different and one lamp is slightly lighter in patches than the other, potentially one has been sat in more direct sunlight than the other. We just think it adds character and story to them

Cleaning, Polishing & Restoration
All our collections have been through our workshop and where possible, we always try to maintain the original finish preserving the patina and colour, some items are sympathetically restored and this is done by our own skilled craftsmen using only traditional methods
We complete a full assessment, re-wire and PAT inspection on all lighting. The full assessment can include general upkeep and updating – Fitting new lamp holders, deep cleaning, minor repairs and replacement of fragile metal pins are all part of our service. Rewiring includes a standard rewire to conform with UK electrical regulations to an adaptation or conversion
