Overall very good condition. The shade with approximately 27 cracks to the glass tiles dispersed throughout (all stable), which is a relatively low number in proportion to the vast number of glass tiles required to execute this complex design. Two of the vertical green lattice tiles on the skirt with horizontal cracks with some associated bending. Due to the nature of the confetti and streamer glass, these tiles are more susceptible to cracks and in select areas throughout the shade the cracks have been covered and stabilized with factory dutchmen (post-production leadlines), which are slightly more linear and rigid compared to the more naturalistic and irregular leadlines throughout. The dutchmen with occasional scattered breaks, not visually detractive. The shade appears to have 5 or 6 tiles which have been replaced at some point in the history of the piece with complementary period Tiffany glass. The shade with minor surface soiling to the adjacent contours of the shade leading throughout. The interior of the shade with remnants of a paper label adhered to one of the tiles adjacent to the signature tag. The rod, chains, socket cluster and sockets appear to be later replacements. The bronze surfaces present with scattered surface scratches, abrasions, rubbing, light surface dirt and minor traces of oxidation. A beautiful example of the model, executed with incredibly naturalistic and experimental confetti and streamer glass which impart the shade with great dynamism and visual depth. The clematis blossoms are articulated in nuanced hues of sky and royal blue. When viewed in person, the green lattice and orange background passages are slightly less saturated compared to the catalogue illustration.
