This early 1900's lamp base is marked PLB & GCO. on the bottom.  The stable weighted lamp base and mid section are made of cast iron.  This circa 1920's art nouve metal design has a painted ocher gold mat finish.  The mid section offers a single G.E porcelain fat boy socket.  With a long 7" tassel pull chain end.  Its unique metal plated brass shade rest is from 1920-30's when many lamps like this held reverse painted glass panels or white metal panel shades.  Your shade top opening (3 1/2") size should accommodate the 3 1/4 to 3 3/4  shade rest top.  This is a very stable low profile base ideal for shades 10-12" in diameter.  I would say its been well maintained and shows no damage or notable issues other than minor paint spots and use.  Rewired and ready to use.
