**In overall very good condition. The top appears to have been polished in the not-too-distant past. It exhibits some very minor surface wear. No visible losses, breaks or repairs.
The base is tight and solid at all of its joints, with absolutely no movement. There is oxidation to the metal, most notably the silver metal, and normal oxidation to the brass ring on the perimeter of the top.
