Here is a retro vintage lamp base in black and gold colors. The base has a high gloss look and is 11 inches tall and is very geometric in shape with sharp angles and ball shapes. The lamp is 7 inches wide and 3 inches to 1 inches in depth. This lamp is shiny black plaster with gold marbling placed periodically around the shape. A triangle of gold joins the look of two round balls that are in the triangle portion. The cord comes out of a hole midway from the top. Shipping weight is 3 pounds. As with any older piece you should check the electric cord for any flaws. I see no nicks or flaws in the cord. The vase bottom is unfinished and uncolored. A very unique retro lamp that would accent any modern or retro looking room.
