Two beautiful and very decorative hand carved hardwood sculptures of a fisherman made in China.
1)The larger one is of a fisherman standing on a Taihu stone. There are holes in his staff making it possible to mount it with fittings and turning it into an exceptional and very atmospheric lamp (see pictures No. 7 & 8). Due to it's large size it could be used both as a floor lamp or as a sculptural table lamp.
Carved of a very heavy hardwood, the eyes of the fish are made of glass.Made in the second half of the XXth century probably around 1950's-1970's. There is a mark on the top.
51,5 cm high
20 cm wide
2) The second one is a much finer quality carving and probably earlier from 1930's- 1960's with a fisherman and his child taking home the catch of the day. Very detailed carving, both the fisherman's, the son's and the fish's eyes are inlaid glass.
42 cm high
17 cm wide
Combined weight: over 6 kg
Overall in good condition. The larger sculpture has a crack due to age in the Taihu stone at the foot of the fisherman (picture no. 10) and a smaller one one of the back of his head (picture no. 8). The other one is overall in excellent condition with beautiful patina, with one small sign of wear on the top of the fisherman's bun.
