Pair of Chinese Export Porcelain Parrots, Mounted as Lamps
Each perches astride a pierced base so incense can be introduced and exit through the beak. As you can see in the photos the mounting and bases look convincingly old. (The wiring is new and to code) It has impressed stamp on the inside of each identifying the maker as Pan Yunlong, 1912-1949. The hexagonal shades are most unusual and are original. They are Japanese, the glass is finely ribbed and reverse painted with flowers and butterflies.
