Overall very good condition. The candlestick displays with a rich russet brown and green and red patina with light surface scratches, minor abrasions and rubbing, consistent with age and gentle handling, and a few areas that have been enhanced with green paint on the base. With some light surface dirt to the recessed contours of the design. The reticulated bronze structure with a minor casting flaw within the upper register. One of the three feet does not sit perfectly flush on the circular base and the candlestick bends slightly towards one side. The blown glass with light surface dirt to the recessed areas adjacent to the bronze framework, and with light surface scratches and a few scattered hairline cracks, all stable. The upper edge of the blown glass with a small chip approximately 1/4 inch wide that is slightly visible in the upper portion of the blown glass section below. The piece of chipped glass has been retained and would benefit from stabilization. With period bobeche in good condition with areas of oxidation throughout. The tulip shade in good condition with some minor air bubbles, particulate inclusions, and irregularities inherent in the making, and with a few expected chips to the bottom rim. The interior of the shade with some surface dirt. In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above.
