Acquired this lamp from the original purchasers daughter. It had been in their family along time! Ad you can see in the photos, at some point the base corner was damaged And repaired with some type of glue. Their are a flaws on the staff, I wouldn't call them dents due to their size. The finial at the top is a bit wiggly, either due to socket replacement not being done well or the original due for an upgrade?
Looks like a little bit of rust near the socket Mount as well. Oregon moisture in a storage unit would be my guess. I've used it for a long time, however, it's nearly antique. All electric components with age should be checked and repaired by a professional if need be, BEFORE use! No this is not uranium..
Any other questions, I'm here to answer. Please simply message me of you have any other questions!
