A 1920's Icicle stalactite/stalagmite shade on cold-painted cast iron base. Made by Lightolier, with original label on the underside of the cast iron. The frosted and bumpy glass shade is 19" tall. The base is 8" in diameter. The glass is perfect and the original paint and the iron base are in EX condition, with original locking set screws. Originally a stalactite ceiling mounted fixture, it can be used as a table lamp, as shown in the picture. There is a center mounting hole in the iron to attach it to the ceiling and a second hole for wiring access. Since it was removed from a ceiling at some point, there is no wiring included with the fixture. To use as a table lamp simply requires mounting a socket and cord in the base.
From Wikipedia on the Lightolier lamp company: Founded in 1904 and still in business: "In its early years, the company specialized in fancy decorative chandeliers then made a shift to high-end design and architectural in the 1920s."

The opening in your new or old metal fixture will be 4" in diameter.
