You can easily get a replacement and the missing prong will not be a problem. The lamp is in excellent condition, and has been electrified as shown in the photos.
It would not be too difficult to take it back to oil if you prefer, but I personally like the electric. It is a three way lamp, so you can light just the top, or just the bottom, or both simultaneously (as pictured - light bulb not included). As you can see in the photos, there is a repair on the shade. I have it pictured both with and without a flash, and with the light on. There are one or two small nicks on the edges of the shade, but nothing as significant as what is pictured.
