Condition Report

Overall in very good condition. The shade displays a vibrant green coloration and strong iridescence, and presents with scattered minor air bubbles, particulate inclusion, and surface irregularities inherent in the making and not visually detractive. The interior of the shade with a subtle, curved surface irregularity measuring approximately five inches long, not visible when the shade is assembled or illuminated, and likely resulting from production. The interior with an area around the bottom border that presents more grey, also inherent in production and not visible when the shade is assembled or illuminated. The base is in overall very good condition with scattered minor surface scratches, abrasions, and light wear to the patina, consistent with age and gentle handling. With a switch and switch knob appear to be later modifications. With a period socket. With a period finial in very good condition, which appears to have been repatinated at some point in the history of the piece and presents with light wear.
