An electrified Japanese bronze sculpture lamp. Depicting a temple attendant holding a broom and lantern. Artist's mark to the base. Provenance: a Jackson, Michigan estate.


Lantern is detached from the sculpture base. There is a fracture re-soldered repair to the forearm of the lifted hand. The broom is bent and likely has a loss to the tip of the handle. Fine casting, as-is condition.
