condition

Overall very good condition. This superb lamp is formerly from the collection of Walter P. Chrysler Jr., and displays a highly artistic and impressionistic glass selection. The shade with approximately 32 hairline cracks dispersed throughout which have been recently stabilized by a professional glass conservator. (This is a relatively low number in proportion to the vast number of glass tiles which were required to execute this complex and monumental shade.) The shade appears to have been sensitively re-leaded and stabilized in some areas around the upper ring and lower irregular border. Two "snowball" tiles have been sensitively replaced with complementary period Tiffany glass. The shade with some extremely light surface soiling concentrated to the contours adjacent to the leadlines. The base displays a rich brown patina with scattered minor surface scratches, abrasions, and light surface soiling to the recessed contours, consistent with age and gentle use. The outer perimeter of the base cushion with some minor shallow bruises and scuffs. All sockets and paddle switches appear original and undisturbed. With a period "pigtail" finial in very good condition with some light wear and minor shallow bruises to the outer perimeter. A stunning example of the model displaying an outstanding, highly artistic glass selection. Each tile in this shade shows great artistic nuance, imparting the lamp with tremendous visual depth and movement. The catalogue photographs do not sufficiently capture the true radiance and luminosity of this lamp's glass selection.
