Overall very good condition. The bronze presents with a rich russet brown and green patina. The bronze surfaces with some scattered minor surface scratches and abrasions consistent with age and gentle handling. With some very light surface soiling to the recessed areas and a few very small traces of wax residue. The standard with some extremely slight undulation, not visually detractive and consistent with the naturalistic aesthetic of the design. A beautiful example of one of Tiffany firm’s most elegant and artistic candlestick designs.
