Chinese Han Dynasty Unglazed Vase as Petite Library Table Lamp

About

A small Chinese Han Dynasty unglazed terracotta jar, 'Hu,' that has been mounted as a library table lamp. Unglazed pottery like this dates to the Han dynasty (206 BC-220 AD). The vase dimensions are 9.5 in. high x 7 in. diameter. This vase has a beautiful gray patina with an elongated belly-shape and incised rings around the top and belly. This lamp would be lovely for a kitchen counter or library book shelf. The electrical cable is installed at the base of the lamp pole, so not to damage the jar. Wired for use in the U.S. The lampshade is handmade in Belgium of fine linen and has a high quality, gold foil inner lining. The lining prevents light from showing through the shade and casts a warm light.
