The good news - both base and shade are clearly marked as Handel - the colors are bright and the pattern is attractive - as far as I can tell, shade and base and finial have always been together. The bad news - this lamp was perfect in every way when I bought it - when packing it to take home someone said something that agitated me and I got in a hurry and fumbled with the finial when screwing it back on the base so it would not get separated - I dropped the heavy finial right into the glass shade that was underside up on the table and broke several pieces like someone through a rock through it - I was so upset at my clumsiness that the lamp and small pieces have sat for 2 years in the box until my assistant was handed the glue and put on the task. If you have wanted a fine Handel lamp, all original, but perhaps balked at the price, this is your opportunity. You see it lit with the wrong bulbs.
All I had on hand with standard thread were these directional spots, clearly focusing the light, rather than allowing it to fill the shade. After all, if it's broken, I sure don't want to sell it to someone. Chases and there is nearly always a better deal on getting more than one item in a box. That deal is unpredictable however. Choosing a shipper depends on weight, dimensions, AND where you are.
If you are new or unaccustomed to purchasing vintage pieces or just want to ask what I mean by "flamingo pink", I will be glad to help you through the process. If you are chemically impaired, please shop in someone else's store. Do I really have to say this?
