Condition

01.04.24: In my opinion regarding LOT 1259: As described these lamps are in need of wiring, both retain wires and plugs, but the plugs may need to be replaced to safely plug in to the wall, I note that the arm of one lamp is slightly bent causing the bobeche/ faux candlestick to be slightly shorter than the other, the same lamp is also lacking one of the small porcelain flowers, the other has a minor glaze chip to the tip of the foo dog tails, I observe patination throughout metal elements, and minute iron pitting to the foo dogs, the porcelain would benefit from a gentle cleaning<br><br>Detailed condition reports are not included in this catalog.
