Overall very good condition. The metal frame with a few scattered and minor chips to the patinated surfaces, largely concentrated near the holes for the electrical wiring. The paper shades are contemporary and remain in very good condition. The arms that support each socket with a faint bend inward, though not visually disruptive and common with age. There is a contemporary cylindrical ceiling canopy. A very attractive example of French mid-century design from Jean Royère which presents well overall.
