Condition

Small losses to some flower petals and a few leaf tips. One branch is shortened. The trailing pink head ribbon is repaired with a staple in the middle. The ribbon repair is the most obvious and as it is on the back, an average observer would not notice it.

A very nice quality early lamp with most of the gold in tact. The candle tray is adjustable in height as is the shade and the added electric lighting element.
