The lamp is ready to use to light dark winter evenings, and with the star motif, looking at the skies might be a more enjoyable experience. The glass is very reflective on the surface, and the overall effect is old or an antique lighting device.
An intricate, sharp detail wood carving of a buddah figure possibly meditating in a cross legged position on a platform. One hand is slightly raised and the other holds a round object. Craftsmanship is just brilliant, detail is quite clear. Behind the figure is a staff with a ring on top that surrounds the figures head like a halo. Finely carved base with multiple patterns. Condition is good with the exception of a 1 1/2in strip of wood missing off one of the base steps. The base is pine and it is likely that a tourist picked this up while on a pilgrimage or world tour in the late 19th century.
