Ed. This model appears both in The Chapman Company's brochure and Company photos, titled Ox-eyed Daisy Lamp. Diameter 16". Style 114. The original lamp was advertised as being 18" in height and supported by a bronze base. This example has a 2" aperture which is why the Wilkinson cap clearly does not fit this small 16" shade. Chapman records also show that they produced shades in both 2" and 3" apertures. Some models are shown with both 2" and 3" diameter apertures. Colossal leading, as on this shade, is often seen on Chapman's work.
