This is a tall tabletop lamp with a beautiful cut crystal shade and 24kt gold over brass base.The dome shaped top features a heavy bowl that holds the socket and is adorned with a brass rim that brings the bowl and shade together to form what looks to be one solid piece... When lit at night, it is absolutely stunning! The shade and bowl feature many patterns but the hobstar and crosshatch patterns are easily recognizable, as well as the deep cuts that separate the patterns. Shade has a pineapple shaped finial. Below the bowl sits a brass plate from which glass prisms (some are missing) dangle.
The base/neck is 24kt gold over brass with raised carving and is slim near the top then flares near the bottom. The electrical cord and other electrical components are made by Heyco and/or Leviton. The on/off switch has to be jiggled just a little for the light to come on but light does stay on once cord is in stationary position. There are some missing prisms...Otherwise, the lamp itself is in mint condition. Measurements: 25 1/2" tall with shade 18 7/8" tall w/o shade 7 3/4" in diameter at base 29" round at center of dome.
