The shade is made of pleated semi-transparent black silk on the outside top and pink silk on the interior with black tassel fringe. It originally had 2 layers of pink silk on the inside, but the outer one was shattered and torn badly, so I removed it and used 2 patches from it to repair the 2 tears on the inner lining. The shade is trimmed with what appears to be gold or at least metallic thread decorating 1 wide of the edging where the fringe is attached and 3/4 wide at the top of the shade. The fringe itself is 5 1/2 long and has very little loss or unraveling. Double antique bronze-finished socket hardware with pull chains.
Long pair of faux-pull silk tassels with gold thread hang from shade (not for pulling but just as elegant decoration). The base is finely grained walnut and is 67 tall with hardware. It is lathe-turned with decoration on the bottom 1/3, then the column tapers gracefully up from there with more turnings at the top (3 1/2 wide to 1 1/2 wide). Shade has two areas of repair to interior pink silk lining and three other old droplet-sized stains. Lining extends behind fringe and has a partially repaired tear in one place.The larger repairs are only visible on one side when both lights are on. Walnut base has been reglued and has normal scratches and wear with a nice protective finish. Completely new wiring to the socket. Originals wires were very old and breaking down.
Sockets are excellent quality and work as new. Current estimate will only let me include 1 box, the base.
