Good Questions: Should I Paint This Lamp?

iloveupstate sent us an email: "I bought this lamp over the weekend at a flea market in upstate New York. The lampshade is plastic - almost bakelite in feel. Inside the shade it says "mobilite ny". Before I contemplate repairing some of the chipped paint (on top of the shade) I thought I'd check in with you folks and see if you knew anything about this lamp. I'd hate to damage something that might be important-ish with my pedestrian painting skills. Thanks!!"...
