Overall in very good condition. The shade displays vibrant cobalt blue and apple green against a cool white ground when viewed firsthand. The shade with approximately 22 hairline cracks dispersed throughout, stable. One side of the shade with an area of more concentrated hairlines and unevenness to the surface of the shade; a few tiles in this area with more extensive hairlines that would benefit from stabilization. The lower edge of the shade in this area is somewhat out of round, which is accommodated by the shade arms which can be minimally adjusted. The shade with some traces of surface soiling concentrated to the contours adjacent to the leadlines, consistent with age. The base displays a rich brown patina and presents with scattered minor surface scratches and abrasions throughout consistent with age and gentle use. With period sockets; one socket with period outer casing and replaced interior componentry. A very handsome lamp model with bright and vivid colors.
