The illustrations are accurate. Good overall condition despite the inevitable minor dents and scratches due to age and use. The gilding is slightly tarnished and rubbed. Some traces of old and inactive woodworm. Many cracks to the gilding on the stem. A few pendants and beads are missing. No electrical fitting. The glass cups on the arms of light are later (a few minor chips on these cups). The metal is slightly rusty.
