Almost half of the area along the top is chipped. In one spot this chip extends all the way to the base metal. This damage wouldn't be visible when hanging off the lamp, but must be mentioned. Otherwise, this lamp shade is stunning.
The diameter at the base is 13.5", and the height is approximately 5". The opening at the top is 1 3/4 inches wide. The total weight of the shade is over 6.5 lbs. I put pictures of this shade up in a discussion forum and there was some question as to whether or not it was, in fact, an antique.
I've included a picture from the internet of a modern reproduction to help illustrate the difference in quality. They thought it was based on a French lampshade and others I've shown it to seem to agree it's probably French. That's the best I've been able to do, in terms of identifying the maker. BE SURE TO CHECK OUT MY OTHER AUCTIONS. I offer this image to help in illustrating the difference in quality between the 2 pieces.I strive to receive 5/5!! That's they're new system. Heavier items will cost more. So I do sometimes add a couple of dollars to the cost to cover myself.
I guarantee everything I sell. However, I go to great lengths to provide correct measurements and nice big pictures of every detail. If you fail to do so, or the piece doesn't fit properly, I'm sorry, but there's nothing I can do. However, I sometimes don't get around to leaving the feedback for a week or so.The item "Antique Art Nouveau Bronze & Glass 13 Butterfly/Swann Lamp Shade Daum Nancy" is in sale since Monday, August 6, 2018.
