Additional Notes & Condition Report

One shade has a hairline crack originating at the fitter rim and extending down approximately 2 inches, otherwise, each shade appears to be in good condition; one shade is a modern replacement; there are some variations to the gold iridescence on the shades and there is also some variation to the ruffled rims along the bottom of the shades

Base: appears to be in good condition; there is wear to the patina, notably, around the drooped necks on two of the stems and also to an area of the lower stems; the base plate is missing two of the small screws; there is natural build up of dirt on the top side of the lily pads around the base; there is some hairline splitting and chips to some of the porcelain light socket sleeves; retains the original "on/off" key; the lamp appears to be in working condition
