Sorry, this item sold. You may also like:
The lamp base is one solid ceramic piece with an off-white glaze and larger specks of gold. The bottom has an approx. 1" gold glazed band. The base of the lamp shouts 1950s-1960s. It looks like a starburst. Approx. 3/4 the way up is another gold band. The base is in excellent condition. I cannot see or feel any chips. There is crazing visible on the white/off-white glaze. There are scuff marks visible on the gold glazed band at the bottom of the lamp base. The felt covering on the under part of the lamp base is coming off. That makes an excellent excuse to rewire it once it arrives at your home. The lamp works, but I highly recommend rewiring it due to its age.
The lamp shade appears to be original to the lamp. It is made out of an off-white colored fiberglass with a swirly pattern. The top and bottom of the shade have a brown plastic cord securing the shade to the metal frame. I would say that the lamp shade is in good condition though there are a few issues. The glue along the seem of the shade has turned dark brown in places. There is also some denting on the back side of the shade. Both of these issues can be seen in the 4th picture. Also, along the top of the shade the plastic cord has worn in two places (from the back side of the shade counting from the seam it's the 3rd and 4th loop). None of these issues can be seen from the front of the shade. They are all age related. One last thing. On the bottom of the shade, about half way around from the front of the shade the fiberglass, an approx. 2mm piece, has separated/cracked from the pressure of the plastic cord. (Picture #1, left bottom corner of shade - you can see it better in the shadow). Nothing is missing. The tiny piece of fiberglass can be glued to the frame of the shade and no one will ever know that a problem existed.
I've been very detailed in my description of the lamps flaws. Please do not let it's imperfections scare you away. The lamp is in very good condition and will certainly make a great addition to anyones mid century modern decor.
Lamp base measures 9 1/2" high x 5 3/8" wide (bottom being the widest). The height does not include the light soffit. Only the ceramic base.
