Condition Report

Overall in very good condition. The shade displays a vibrant orange hue which transitions to more pink-orange around the bottom edge when viewed firsthand. The shade in very good condition with scattered minor air bubbles, particulate inclusions and surface irregularities inherent in the making and not visually distracting. The upper aperture of the shade with a small chip measuring approximately ¼ inch wide, not visible when the shade is installed. The base in very good condition overall. The gilt bronze surfaces with scattered minor surface scratches and abrasions and with some wear to the patina, consistent with age and gentle use. The base enamel appears all intact and displays a rich and vibrant orange hue that complements the shade.
