Vintage Bronze Oil Lamp with Elephant Motif, Rural Nepal, Mid-Late 20th Century

$54520% Off


Vintage bronze oil lamp with elephant motif from rural Nepal, mid-late 20th century. Bronze oil and kerosene lamps were widely used throughout the mountain and hill areas of Nepal, but as availability of electricity through inexpensive solar panels and micro hydro projects has become more widespread, they are becoming more and more a thing of the past. This lamp was handcrafted of bronze by village craftsmen utilizing basic casting tools and methods, and reflects the playfulness that Nepali’s so often incorporate into their daily lives. And of course, the beloved elephant. The piece is in good condition. There is an old repair on the stem about and inch below the elephant. Dimensions: 3 inches wide by 5.5 inches deep by 14 inches tall.
