This is a Bellova "gnome" lamp in the largest size made. It is 15" tall and the diameter of the shade is 14". The base is ball shaped and 7" in diameter. All of the glass is in near perfect condition. There are two tiny flea bites on the bottom fitter of the shade where it goes into the base, and obviously, cannot be seen. They are very tiny, and I mention them only because after very careful searching, I found them. The shade and base are beautifully painted in geometric patterns. The colors are very difficult to name. I would say they are gold, mint green, burnt orange and mauve or brownish on the shade, and orange, green and brownish on the base. They look very different when you compare lit with unlit, so I will let you decide the colors from the pictures which are a fairly accurate depiction. Suffice it to say, the colors are crisp, bright and warm at the same time. When the lamp is lit, the colors are absolutely wonderful. This is a very rare form Bellova in perfect condition. I just noticed that in the first photo, the color of the base and shade look slightly different. I can assure you that the phenomena is a lighting/camera problem and not a lamp problem. The colors are identical.Questions are always welcomed and more photos can be made available to you.
