Rare and Decorative Carved Chimp, Monkey Wooden Table or Desk Lamp Early 1900


This monkey is looking for a new home! Great antique, hand-carved monkey offering you his lamp. If you look closely than you can see him reaching out and offering the lamp to you, with a slight grin. This rare and delightful chimpansee desk or table lamp puts a smile on everybodies face. The lifelike face and natural posture is a joy to watch and this lamp makes is a great decorator's piece. It has a wonderful patina and will look great in virtually every type of interior. This decorative artwork form the beginning of the 20th century is signed on the base H.Groen.

The height of this unique chimp without the lampshade is 11 inches, base depth 8 inches by 7 inches wide. The shipping costs from the Netherlands (store to door in 1 till 4 days) are $free with tracking and trace number. The Time to Buy is When You Find it!
