Overall very good condition, slight color discrepancy between shade and base from the firing. Shade: short, tight cracks to a few pieces of glass (one piece of glass has a 1/2" scallop-shaped chip to interior). Base: thin 2 1/2" long grinding chip to edge of base (in the making), one tiny fleck to top of stem where shade sits. Missing original switch (now an inline cord switch).
