Additional Notes & Condition Report
Appears to be in generally good condition; there are however a few individual segments that have hairline cracks, including two of the now uppermost horizontal band at rim edge, two of the larger segments and approximately one of the smaller diamond segments; it appears that this shade was originally a lamp shade and has been modified for use as a hanging shade; the turtle back tile appears to be an original Tiffany tile, however would not have been originally affixed to the shade; accordingly, the orientation of the Tiffany tags are now perceived as being upside down; the chains are also likely not by Tiffany; shade appears to be in the round and appears nice and tight; the sockets and interior lighting mount are later replacements (not i.e. Tiffany), and now detached and not tested for working order
