condition

Overall very good condition. When viewed in person, the shade displays a warm, intensely saturated palette of cherry red, bright magenta, and vibrant tangerine, which is contrasted by cool green, blue and turquoise hues of the leaves and stems. The shade is comprised of an artistic selection of mottled, striated and confetti glass. The shade with approximately 8 hairline cracks dispersed throughout, all stable. The shade with some light surface soiling throughout concentrated to the contours adjacent to the leadlines. The monumental, internally-illuminated “Turtle-Back” and mosaic tile base is in overall very good original condition. The bronze surfaces display a beautifully rich marbled patina and present with scattered extremely minor surface scratches, abrasions, and with some extremely minor traces of oxidation to the recessed contours consistent age and gentle handling. The bronze with a few occasional minute casting flaws inherent in the making and not visually detractive. The outermost edge of the base foot with a minute loss to the patina, only visible upon close inspection. The turtle-back tiles all appear to be original and undisturbed and present a strong emerald green when illuminated. When viewed with reflected light, the surfaces of the turtle-back tiles are intensely iridized and present a range of brilliant jewel-tone hues. All of the mosaic glass tiles set within the lower portion of the base standard and foot appear original and undisturbed, displaying a beautiful transition from deep cobalt blue to varying hues of green. The mosaic with some light surface soiling consistent with age. Some areas of the mosaic have possibly been rubbed in with some new putty. Four of the six sockets appear original and undisturbed; two interior socket mechanisms have been replaced but retain their original period socket casings. The internal socket appears original and undisturbed. With a period finial in very good condition. An exceptional lamp displaying a particularly impressive and harmonious shade and base pairing, superb scale, and visual impact.
