The solid brass components of the base/candlestick are split, crack and repair free showing little or no signs of wear or use. The cream/off white marble foot is crack, break and chip free.
It shows negligible signs of wear/use and has a good even satin gloss. The internally ribbed, engraved and gilded fount is in very good to excellent condition. It does have a couple of tiny air bubbles commensurate with glass of this age. It also shows some signs of wear/use, predominantly to the top face, by way of fine scratches and an occasional tiny scuff.
These are difficult to pick with everything which is going on with this fount. The gilding shows some loss to the gilt where the top surface meets the sides due to cleaning. The collar and burner are replacements manufactured by Gaudard who have been making these burners since 1902.
