Overall in very good condition. The lily shades are a very well matched set in excellent condition; only a few shades with exceedingly minute surface flecks to the top apertures. The gilt alligator patina on the base showing minimal gentle wear, light surface soiling, and a few occasional areas of minor surface discoloration. With period sockets throughout and period bakelite base switch. A beautiful example of this iconic model, displaying a superb set of shades with exceptional color and intense iridescence.
