This is what you would consider a marriage piece. Someone had the idea to convert the ball vase into a boudoir lamp.
The lamp base is blown of green iridescent glass with Abstract decor and the ball shape has three openings with gold finish metal escutcheons. Pallme Konig and Kralik did produce a Abstract decor. I believe this is a Kralik example due to the shape. Kralik produced ball shaped vases in many various decors. Pallme Konig ball shapes I have not come across.
The lamp socket is from GE and is for a 12.5 watt bulb. A good sign the lamp was made by someone in the US. Turn knob is of bakelite material and the rest of the hardware is brass. Electrical cord comes through one of the openings.
6-3/8" tall to the socket. There are three openings on the vase and is 1-1/8" diameter. The ball shape has a 2-1/2" diameter base and is 3-1/2" wide.
