Table lamp with a base that has a low-waisted baluster shape resting on a flared disc-shaped foot with three raised channels. At the neck of the base sits a wrought-iron support with three curved arms terminating in small vertical foliate shapes. A flaring bell-shaped shade with a button at the top of the dome rests on these arms. The basic orange color is overlaid with amethyst and green rising from the base into the body, and the shade is overlaid with amethyst reaching down from the dome button. Both lamp base and shade exteriors are treated with acid to give a matte appearance. Signed in gold enamel script Schneider on the foot.
