Overall in very good condition. A stunning dining table model by Paul Evans featuring his signature and skilled polychrome patchwork welding with colorful enameled surfaces. The steel surfaces present with some oxidation concentrated to the outer edges of each patchwork element consistent with age the natural evolution of the medium. The enamel with some areas of minor loss, abrasions and rubbing throughout consistent with gentle use and not visually distracting. The two bases can be reconfigured as desired. Both bases retain their original, gilt metal feet.
