Condition Report

shade is slightly more blue than pictured in the catalogue illustration. The glass shade appears undisturbed and presents with very minor areas of slight discoloration consistent with age, and scuffs near the rim from contact with the base. The metal elements with minor scattered oxidation and surface soiling to the recessed areas. A superbly executed example with a poetic motif. Sotheby’s does not guarantee electrical components and recommends having all wiring inspected by a licensed electrician.
