Overall good condition. The gilt surfaces of this floor lamp with considerable surface wear and losses to the gilding and soiling throughout. The standard with almost complete losses to the gilding, revealing the base metal, as seen in the catalogue illustration. The shade with a few small chips to the outer edge of the top aperture which is not evident once the shade is installed in the base. The shade with overall surface dirt and rubbing to the iridescent surface concentrated to the middle portion of the exterior of the shade. Switch probably replaced.
