The glass vase portion is in terrific shape, but not quite mint. It has only a few very small imperfections but better than 98/100 from the era. These often had paint chips where the metal font would sit, but our's does not. There is only some minor wear (and it may be original to piece) on the gold paint on lower edge as shown in pictures.
We photographed all sides and top and bottom. The color is very nice and so is the variegated pattern as shown. We photographed in a few light settings to try and capture the essence of the lamp and the color does vary in different settings. This has a #12 Burner with wick, flame spreader & old 3 line Aladdin Chimney.
The burner has lost a good bit of the brass finish, but is in decent general shape. The wick looks barely used, but the gear driven riser arm that raises the wick needs adjustment as the wick does not move up and down freely.
We did not attempt to alter, but wanted to note it. Both the upper and lower edge of lamp are pretty crisp with only a few micro imperfections. Please review all pictures taken for your consideration and use zoom feature if needed. These lamps have a rich luster to them as they are painted inside and so outer glass enhances the paint. I received the lamp today, you did a great job packing the lamp, you could have sent it to mars with this packing.
