    This is an example of the 252 lamp fitted with the wide glass globe. This then makes it the 252A. The 252 had a long model life starting in the early 30s and carrying on to the late 50s. This example is from the mid 30s.

    A gorgeous lamp Nils,

    It must cast a pleasant light with that shade.
