The patinated bronze presents with rare instances of very light wear, concentrated to the ring holding the glass shade. There is a minute casting flaw on one feet, inherent to the making (a tiny hole in the bronze). A soldered joint is broken between one hand and the ring of the shade, not visually distracting. The glass shade presents with a few irregularities inherent to the making and with some tiny dirt remnants.
