Condition Report

Rewired. Overall very good original condition. Very minor bubbling to shellac on inside of original mica. Two small drill holes to base (was probably affixed to a decorative stand some time ago – there is some corresponding minor wear around bottom of foot). Minor scratches and dullness to original patina on body. Some losses to patina on neck due to heat from bulbs. One replaced socket. Original pullchains intact.
