condition

Overall in very good condition. The shade and base are both impressed with the firm's production number, 10116, reinforcing that both components originated together from the time of manufacture. The shade with approximately 10 hairline cracks dispersed throughout, which is a relatively low number in proportion to the vast number of glass tiles which were required to execute this complex and monumental shade. All of these hairline cracks appear stable. The shade with surface soiling to the recessed folds of the glass and to the contours adjacent to the leadlines. As is commonly seen with the "Wisteria" model, a few of the lower panicles along the bottom irregular border are very subtly bent inward. These elements all appear stable. The top bronze armature of the shade and lower branching is finely cast and displays an exceptionally rich green and russet brown patina. With some gentle rubbing to the high points of the top reticulated shade armature and some light surface soiling and minor oxidation to the recessed contours. The bronze branching incorporated throughout the top register of the shade is highly sculptural and tactile, and adds great visual interest and dimensionality to the lamp. The "Tree" base displays an exceptionally rich and satisfying green patina with russet brown highlights. The base also displays exceptional quality to the casting, and the branching on the lower cushion is particularly sculptural and well defined. The patinated surfaces of the base with some occasional light surface scratches, abrasions and gentle rubbing, and with some light surface soiling to the recessed contours of the branching consistent with age and gentle use. The base retains its original bronze decorative switch, which is fully functional as a two-way switch. All four electrical sockets appear to be original and undisturbed. The lamp displays beautifully in person with strong visual presence. The glass selection is highly artistic and thoughtful, displaying a heavily saturated and well-varied color palette. The wisteria blossoms are articulated in a full range of deep cobalt blues hues, and the lower panicles are selectively accented with a rich jewel-toned aqua. The glass selection is overall more nuanced and variegated compared to the printed catalogue illustration, with slightly stronger blue tones throughout. The thoughtful glass selection effectively evokes the feeling of dripping Wisteria blossoms, and the composition is lyrical and full of movement. An outstanding example of this iconic model.
