This lamp is pressed glass from the depression era, with brass fittings and its original electrical hardware. The severed cloth wire was replaced with a new cord and a new shade (from the 1990s) was added. The glass itself is clear but painted on the interior of the lamp; there is slight flaking due to age. This lamp most likely came with a matching glass shade which clipped onto the bulb, but had no shade with it as it was salvaged from a glue project. Maker and pattern are unknown.
