Overall in very good condition. The ceiling light presents with a rich glass surface inherent to the structure of Pulegoso glass. The lower end of the glass element with a minor speck to the glass surface measuring approximately 3/4 in. long and not visually distracting inherent to production. The painted brass surface with areas of light oxidation and some loss to the patina throughout consistent with age and use. When installed the ceiling light displays a wonderfully rich color and sculptural presence.
