Overall in very good condition. The shades are an assembled set and present with scattered minor air bubbles and particulate inclusions inherent in the making and not visually distracting. The upper rim of some of the shades with some minor edge chips, consistent with age and not visible when the shades are installed. The bronze mounts with some scattered minor surface scratches, abrasions, and light wear consistent with age. The mounts with a few occasional traces of paint or accretions to the wall mount on one sconce and to the bottom point of the other sconce, visible in the catalogue illustration. A very charming and attractive pair of sconces. In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above.
