One of the shades has a very small nick to the fitter rim, however, it is not of great consequence; one shade has the appearance of having a horizontal hairline crack, however, it is simply the result of a raised thread of glass on the interior side of the shade, not of any consequence; one shade has a somewhat large shallow surface burst air bubble, at mid-height, on the exterior side; there is wax residue on the interior side of the shades (the lamp has not been electrified); one of the green blow-out glass elements is cracked; each metal insert appears to retain its original screws; extensive wear to patina; underside of the base plate now lacks the two screws that would secure it in place; three of the four metal candle holder inserts now have rope twisted around their stems to add greater diameter and, more importantly, to better secure each insert in place.
