Moe Bridges Table Lamp

For your consideration is perhaps the nicest, super high quality, top of the line MOE BRIDGES table lamp in museum quality condition. The flowered 18" shade is properly signed MOE BRIDGES CO. 202. The artistry and well coordinated colors in the keen definition of this shade is the best ever. The exterior has the chipped ice finish which adds the 3 dimension and makes the shade perform. No chips or cracks.
The base stands 22. 5", is fully signed as shown. In excellent original condition in all ways, even has the Moe Bridges chain pulls. Sometimes they get it right, this is one of those times. Priced low to sell $3350.
