This unusual rectangular shape allows this lamp to be pushed close to the wall! Not only is the shade stained glass, but the base is also stained glass! Covered in lots of dragonflies and flowers.I'm not sure of the age of this lamp, but I'm guessing the 1970's? It is in excellent condition! It has been well taken care of! Light bulbs are not included! The very bottom of the base is a dark bronze color and has the switch knob on it.
