The lamp upright rod leading to the lamp socket and shade are behind the bottle vessel. The vessel has a carved foo dog stopper and the carving on the heavy bottle, within a lozenge form front and back are a dragon on one side, the other a fantastical bird. As well the piece is carved over its entirety, 1970s era silk pleated oval shade. Rewired, silk wrap cord, new UL brass socket.
