The shade in not original and it needs a wick. The mounting bracket was missing so I had one made. The wall mounting bracket it quite cool because it looks like chain going from the top to the bottom but should be painted a brass color.
As far as the staying upright/level as it is being rocked, it works PREFECT. There are 2 dots over the O in GOTEBORG and Iam not real sure but I do believe that it is an E in GOTEBORG. The wick adjuster says Unicum M K & C Berlin. It is 22 1/4 h.
