Overall in very good condition. The shade with approximately 3 cracks dispersed throughout, stable. The shade with some traces of surface soiling concentrated to the etched bronze overlays on the dragonfly wings. The base is in overall very good condition with scattered minor surface scratches, wear and abrasions, consistent with age and gentle use. The base with some occasional small patina losses concentrated to the legs and claw feet. The telescoping mechanism is fully functional. The riser and wheel appear to be later reproductions.
