About

A Dramatic and Unique pair of large scale statues depicting the male and female forms of ancient Asian nobility.The statues are antique,carved from mahogany and cerused to highlight intricate detail. At sometime during the mid- 20th century the statues were drilled to the base and set up to be lamps. This is the type of lighting touch that trend setting designers (a la James Mont ) would bring to their custom projects in the '40's and '50's. Excellent Vintage Condition, rewired with new silk shades. The price noted is for the pair. The height listed is to the top of the finial.
