Overall very good condition with no damage or restoration detected. There is a blemish/surface impurity to the foot of one of the candlesticks in the making that is approximately ¼ inch wide, however this does not adversely affect the overall appearance of the candlesticks. Please note that the color in the catalogue is not accurate. In reality the blue is a cooler tone, not the dark purple/blue depicted in the photograph and the surfaces exhibit an attractive iridescence.
