Each lamp is wired for American outlets and functions properly when tested. When compared aluminum shades exhibit slight differences in construction and overall tone, with each showing few small points of minor wear associated with age and use. One lamp has a spacer added just below brass stem. One brass finial has been updated which causes a slight amount of play in use. Articulated points function smoothly when tested. Minor wear to aluminum stems. Good vintage condition. Please note, this item will preview and ship from Chicago.
