203 x 95,5 x 2 cm ; 79 ⅞ x 37 ⅝ x 0 ¾ in

Good overall condition consistent with age and use. The socket of the opening system is distinguished from the whole grid by a gilded patina. This subtle touch contrasts perfectly with the beautiful dark grey patina of the grid. Scattered oxidation marks throughout inherent to the making process. Some tiny rust marks throughout. Residue of old blue paint.
