Additional Notes & Condition Report

the shade appears to be in good condition; this specialist could only detect one of the small green glass geometric segments at the lower border that had a hairline crack; two of the four light light socket s are modern replacements and the other two sockets are older, however, they too might be replacements: the sockets do not have the typical black Bryant or GE butterfly-shaped on-off switches, instead each has a pull chain; there is expected wear to the gilding on the lamp base and also the pierced metal cap; one of the light sockets has a jammed pull chain and cannot be illuminated
