Overall fair vintage condition. Heavy losses to chrome plating throughout. Missing one screw to top panel. Slight separation of lamp body from base on one corner. A couple of minor chips to glass panels, about 1/4" each, difficult to see. One leaded glass panel slightly loose. We recommend complete rewiring; no longer in working order.
