Overall in very good condition. When viewed firsthand, the shade displays a warm amber yellow hue. The shade with approximately 8 hairline cracks concentrated to the lower border glass, stable. The shade with some minor and light traces of surface soiling concentrated to the contours adjacent to the leadlines and within the recessed contours of the molded “linenfold” glass, consistent with age. The interior of one glass panel with a small trace of adhesive residue measuring approximately ¾ in., not visually distracting. The gilt bronze base throughout presents with scattered minor surface scratches, abrasions, wear and discolorations consistent with age and gentle handling. The lamp does not retain its matching “Favrile Fabrique” finial. The present period finial is designed to accompany a smaller shade and when assembled to the base displays a small gap between the finial and upper aperture of the shade measuring approximately 3/8 in. wide, not impacting stability or functionality of the lamp overall. With a reproduction support wheel. With period sockets.
