The lamp stands 24" tall on the silver plate base. The shade is 18" in diameter. It is painted on the interior with four colorful birds of paradise, along with foliage and flowers in a variety of beautiful colors, against an olive green background. The top is in light and dark blue with teardrop decoration. The base has three legs and and three sockets at the top. Both the shade and base are signed and in excellent condition. No chips to shade and plating good on the base, but could use a polishing. This is a striking lamp that used to sell for 7500.00. I'm pricing this one at less than half that. Some pictures are tilted , but the lamp is perfectly straight.
