favrile glass, painted wood, gilt metal
shade engraved 5182 K L.C. Tiffany-Favrile
finial engraved 5182 K L.C.T. Favrile
9¼ in. (23.5 cm) high
Overall very good condition. The glass shade with scattered fine surface scratches consistent with age and gentle handling, and with scattered minute air bubbles and particulate inclusions inherent in the making and not visually detractive. The upper aperture of the shade with a few extremely minor flea bites. The finial appears to be assembled with the shade but presents with complementary iridescence to the shade decoration. The riser is in very good condition and appears to have possibly been touched up with varnish in a few areas along the bottom edge. The gilt border on the riser with some light surface soiling to the recesses.
