Rare pair of Chinese Ming dynasty earthenware temple guardian figures made into lamps. The figures originally were architectural ornaments or supports. These lamps have exceptionally fine mountings, circa 1910-1930, with brass and bronze fittings the quality of which cannot be found today. The adjustable shafts telescope from 31 to 34 inches. Lovely estate condition with some old professional repairs. The figures each measure 11" W x 18" H x 6" D. The gorgeously carved rosewood pedestals each measures 12.5" W x 7" D x 2.5" H. We have never seen another pair like them. They are truly impressive.

I got a chair from my grandmother with carved dragons on it. After searching everywhere, I found the same chair on your website. I thought it looked Asian, but had no idea how valuable it is! I almost sold it to a friend for a hundred bucks. I am so glad I used your site to learn how much it's worth! Your price guide is such a great tool! Thanks Again!!
