Overall in very good condition. This unique piece displays a superb sculptural quality when seen in person. The steel surface with occasional surface scratches and scuffing, as well as some loss to the patina partially visible in the catalogue photography and concentrated to the corners of the structure. Two corner edges present with some rust spots, the largest measuring approximately 1 inch wide and not visually distracting. The glass tabletop with very minor scuffing and light scratches throughout consistent with age and gentle use.
