condition

Overall good original condition. The glass presents with some light surface soiling throughout, mostly concentrated to the upper portion of the shade. The hand-painted decoration with some rubbing, flaking and losses, mostly concentrated to the snakes and partially visible in the catalogue illustration. The red snake with more significant paint losses, the lower half having almost completely disappeared (not visible in the catalogue illustration, please contact the department for further images). The lacquered metal elements with a few light scratches and tiny chips of lacquer. The metal element holding the glass bulb is slightly bent along one edge measuring approximately 1 inch. An incredibly charming and dynamic unique work executed by Warhol for Teddy and Arthur Edelman.
