Overall in very good condition. The metal surfaces with scratches and minor nicks and dings. The covered metal bar elements are dented and some are bent. This appears to be part of the original design, which may possibly have been exaggerated with use. Surface dirt throughout. The bars move slightly, but are all tightly fastened. The ends of the rods with more concentrated scratches, possibly also inherent in the making.
