Overall in very good condition consistent with age and gentle use. The base with minor scattered oxidation and rubbing throughout. The alabaster shade with minor rubbing and scuffing, a few very minor flea bites to the outside edge, and a large repair to the back outer edge which measures approximately 8 x ½ in. A stylish example in very good condition. Sotheby's does not guarantee electrical components and recommends having all wiring inspected by a licensed electrician.
