Art Nouveau Desk/Table Lamp with Daum Shade

With its gracefully curved shaft and organically decorated base, and sporting a richly and deeply colored, signed Daum shade, this silver-plated brass, 23-inch high Art Nouveau lamp is perhaps the prize of my Nouveau lamp collection! There's some silver loss (that over-zealous Fifi the French maid thing again), appropriate wear for a delicate silver finish over a hundred years old.

The signature on the shade is just perceptible, in the usual place near the rim. I have rewired this lamp with a rayon-covered cord and installed a hi-lo-off switch on the cord. A sixty-watt bulb with a candelabra base is the maximum wattage.
