This Australia Retro Barsony Black Banjo Player lamp and shade, it has all the original fittings, plug & is in working order. There are some small chips around his foot, Trouser leg & a tiny one on his chest, A couple of unnoticeable on the face, The horrible repair can be smoothed out some & painted black & it is very firm. The lovely old ribbon shade is made of satin & not plastic & I would describe it as in reasonable / good condition for its age. It does have some fading. When turned on at night the ruby coloured glow it gives off is very beautiful & all its faults are forgotten. It measures 46 cm to the top of the shade & 21 m to the top of the ceramic lamp. Marked on the base FL-31 and recently sold in March 2009 for $132.50 (AUD) in Australia.
