Overall in very good condition. The glass tabletop surfaces with minute surface scratches, not visually distracting and consistent with gentle use. The bronze surfaces with minor rubbing and minor surface scratches, consistent with gentle use. The bronze with some traces of oxidation to the recessed areas of the patinated bronze surfaces, consistent with age. A whimsical and highly functional work by Mckie.
