It thus needs a new flex and switch which I will get done by an electrician as soon as I can. I will be using period style flex and incorporating an on-off switch near the lamp for easier usage. The lamp is 12 tall (30cms) and is in two parts - the base and the globe.
There is a pre-cut gap on the rim of the base for the flex its not a chip! It's a beautiful classy object that will have been very expensive when it was bought.Mushroom lamps have an appeal of their own, even when cut glass decanters and the like have fallen out of fashion.
