Condition

Overall very good condition. The favrile glass shade and finial with beautiful ornate pulled feather decoration and rich coloration and iridization. The shade and finial with air bubbles and minute particulate inclusions inherent in the making and not visually detractive. The surface of the shade and finial with very minor light surface scratches consistent with age and gentle handling. The bottom aperture of the shade with two small edge chips, one with a shallow associated loss on the interior of the shade, which are only visible on the shade's interior and not visible when the lamp is assembled. The riser is in very good condition with very minor light surface scratches and edge abrasions consistent with age and gentle handling. The gilt border on the riser with some very minor rubbing to the finish. A superb desk lamp design by Tiffany with complex for and ornamentation.
