You dont see these two features in many tripod lamps, yet the overall design speaks to Nessen's timeless elegance in design. Shade is in excellent condition free from any chips, cracks or damage. A 3 way mogul socket but you can use a regular light bulb with a reducer socket if desired. I have also included 2 pictures that show examples of the lamp with a fabric shade in both Black and White. These display the many moods of this lamp you can choose as options other then the milk glass shade that is included.Measurements: The lamp stands an impressive 56" tall including shade and measures 11-1/2" in diameter at the round brass base. Shade measures 5" tall x 10" in diameter at top. Overall, the lamp is in great condition for its age. The lamp is structurally strong and sound. As expected due to age, the brass has taken on a patina. The round brass base at the ground shows signs of some minor oxidation and pitting.... Please see all pictures to determine exact condition. The electrical wiring is in good condition, and it appears to be original to the lamp. One containing lamp body, and the other containing the Milk Glass lamp shade.
