Nice Vintage lamp that was awarded to my Uncle at a Chevrolet function many years ago. He never used it and I found it stored away up in the attic.The wood base does have a small split that would be easy to mask with a little black paint. The car on the base is in great condition and is pewter / silver in color. The shade is shiny silver. It measures 24" from base to top of shade. The original card was still with the item it reads" A favor for a Chevrolet Leader". Inside: "Please accept this token of appreciation for your attendance at this Legion of Leaders Banquet. This original 1911 model Chevrolet lamp has been created in recognition of the outstanding accomplishments of our Legion of Leaders members. We hope you will enjoy it for many years to come. Congratulations and thanks for your accomplishments and best wishes for continued sales success. best regards, R. E.
