eBay Find of the Day: Blanc de Chine Guanyin Lamps

See that cool Asian lamp on Nancy Drew's bedside table, below? I went on a hunt for something similar on eBay this morning, and bingo!

This pair of Blanc de Chine Guanyin figural lamps stand an impressive 20 inches tall. (FYI: Blanc de Chine is French for -- you guessed it -- white Chinese porcelain, and Guanyin is the Buddhist Goddess of Mercy.)

They're not in perfect shape (one of the figures is missing her thumb, and the other has a glued repair near the base). But they still cut striking figures and would look great with a set of flared pagoda-style shades in the color of your choice.

Current bid: $35 for the pair.
