Overall in superb condition. With minor inclusions and air bubbles to the glass scattered throughout, which is inherent in the making. The globe-shaped element is comprised of a single large scale piece of glass with an opening to the top and bottom. With some minor chips to the edges of the top aperture. The lighting agent is a milk glass cylindrical column with a socket to the interior, upon which the globe is fitted. As seen in the catalogue illustration, the white glass element is slightly longer that the globe and a small portion is visible below the lower aperture.
