Wonderful depiction of a Scarlet Macaw parrot perched on jungle foliage, painted and fired on, on two sides of the round shade. The uniquely wide (10") ceiling canopy is perfect for the shade, giving the impression of the jungle canopy over the Parrot. The canopy retains it's original finish and patina, showing copper highlights on the Laurel leaf pattern. (Matching ceiling canopy on other Macaw Parrot globe).
This is another of those shades which must be seen lit. The artist painted the tan background with a cloud like effect, areas of light and dark, and a white backdrop on the Macaw. It is hard to get a good idea of the cloud like effect and the intensity of color without being lit from within. This shows beautifully on both counts.

It is particularly important with any vintage or antique item you are considering buying over the internet that you be able to see enlarged images of the item. Dealers know is that defects, uneven color, or poor workmanship are easily hidden by small or unfocused images. This cannot be stressed enough, you need to know exactly what you are getting and no amount of verbiage (overabundance or superfluity of words, as demonstrated here) of how great their product is can replace sharp, large images. Not showing larger images is an apology for poor quality and poor service.
