Very good overall condition. The gilt bronze presents with some light tarnishing overall and with some rare instances of slightly darker oxidation. There are a few tiny oxidation stains scattered on the top, not visually distractive, and a few very rare, light and tiny vert-de-gris stains scattered. The top presents with a few rare and tiny scratches. All consistent with age and use.
