Overall good original condition, glass, and patina. Nearly invisible professional restoration includes three minor stabilized cracks to glass, a few re-soldered joints (to secure glass panels in proper position), reassembling original chain and re-fabricated loop for original square hardware, and rewiring using a period socket and pull-chain. Missing canopy.
