Overall in good condition consistent with age and use. The wood surface is slightly dry, some discoloration around the bottom of both supports. One support is slightly loose and would benefit from adjustment. The ivory is in tact. The wood on the back of the mirror with a few losses to the veneer around the edges. The bronze has darkened and would benefit from a light professional cleaning.
