Overall in very good condition. The shade is in excellent condition with no visible cracks. The shade with a few light surface scratches and a few minor edge flecks. The base displays a dark patina with green highlights. The base with light surface, minor scattered discolorations, rubbing to the patina and surface soiling, consistent with age. The shade arms with concentrated areas of rubbing to the patina where the shade is placed; these are not visible when the shade is righted. All sockets and pull chains appear to be original and undisturbed. A complementary base and shade pairing. The shade displays beautifully detailed painted decoration to the interior of the shade which allows for luminous, naturalistic effects in the depiction of the oranges and foliage.
