This is a beautiful old Art Nouveau Art Deco lamp from around 1920. It seems to be pretty much intact and the finish also looks nice for its age as you can see in the photographs. She is a beautiful woman of the time holding up the shade which was most likely one of those large Czeckolslavakian or Austrian multi colored ball shades. If you have a shade that will fit this base, then you got something good going. It stands 13" tall and with the 7" diameter ball shade it would be around 20" to 21" tall. A nice size and it would make quite a statement. The top fits between a 3 1/2" to 4" shade. I haven't seen too many of these around and I don't think they come along very often. It has old wiring so I would definitely rewire it. Good luck and have fun bidding!Please note that we do our mailings on Mondays.
