Description
very rare bronze Hu vase with archaic motifs, in lamp frame (1) - Bronze - China - First half 20th century
Good condition, see description - 33×14×23.5 cm

A highly exclusive, beautifully decorated antique Chinese bronze Gu-model vase as lamp frame. Decorated with archaic patterns. The vase has a very good patina. Very beautifully decorated and a lovely model. With a heavy weight. The vase is possibly older, but I think it's a 20th-century copy. The bottom and top are fitted with wood. Very decorative on a work desk.

Condition: good.
Some casting flaws and signs of wear, please view the photos.
It's possible that the bottom is damaged or absent due to the mounting of the lamp (not visible).

Size: 72 cm high including lamp frame.
