nickeled brass, glass, silk shade
impressed with the artist's mark
14 in. (35.5 cm) high
10 in. (25.4 cm) diameter of shade
Overall in very good condition. The nickeled brass presents with very light surface scratches throughout and occasional discolorations. The glass spherical base, which is a separate unit that sits within the nickeled brass base structure, with air bubbles inherent to production and light surface scratches consistent with gentle use (not visually distracting). The interior of the lamp includes very small, blue-grey balls which are slightly darker than pictured in the catalogue photography. The shade has been replaced and is in excellent condition. A superb example of this exceedingly rare and chic design. Sotheby's does not guarantee electrical components and suggests having all wiring inspected by a licensed electrician.
