Overall in very good condition. The shade is executed with dichroic glass: when viewed with reflected light, the shade displays a pale olive and sage green color palette; when illuminated, the shade displays a warm amber hue. The shade with fewer than five hairline cracks dispersed throughout, stable. The shade with some light wear to the gilt patina. The base is in overall very good condition and is decorated with sculpted flowers and a dynamic whiplash motif that swirls around the body. The bronze with scattered minor surface scratches, abrasions, light wear and discolorations consistent with age and gentle use. The base was possibly re-gilt at some point in the history of the piece. With period sockets. With a period finial in very good condition with light wear. A lovely unit with complementary shade and base pairing.
