Additional Notes & Condition Report
the glass shade and the glass base each appear to be in good, undamaged condition; no apparent rim chips, hairline cracks, burst surface air bubbles, etc.; the gilt-metal harp is now rusted and has a corroded finish and the gilding is mostly worn away (the metal harp is concealed when the shade is placed on the base); the lower soldered join to one arm of the harp mount is now partially detached the harp is somewhat loose and has a distinct lean to it; the lamp is currently wired with a replaced wire, however, it has not been tested; there is a drill hole on the domed foot of the lamp base to allow the electric wire to pass through - it appears this hole for wiring may have been added later (there is evidence in the metal mount that supports the glass shade that there may originally have been a turn on/off switch is this location; consequently, the drill hole may not be "as made" at the factory
