Overall in very good condition. When viewed first hand, the shade displays a saturated palette of red and green hues. The shade with approximately 45 hairline cracks dispersed throughout which have been recently sensitively stabilized by a professional glass conservator, all stable and not visually distracting. Three green tiles in the border have been sensitively replaced at some point in the history of the piece with well-matched period Tiffany glass. The shade with some minor traces of surface soiling throughout concentrated to the contours adjacent to the leadlines, consistent with age, and with some scattered minute flecks of white house paint, only visible upon close inspection. With associated hanging componentry (finial, chain, ceiling canopy) in good condition with some light wear and oxidation consistent with age. With a replaced socket cluster. A striking and elegant shade with rich coloration.
