Condition Report

Overall in very good condition. The shade displays a vibrant red-orange hue when viewed firsthand. The shade with approximately 4 hairline cracks dispersed throughout, stable. 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. The urn with some occasional very minor and shallow dents. With a period kerosene-burner that was adapted with a period socket. With a later reproduction finial in very good condition. A highly complementary shade and base pairing with balanced proportions.
