**One ball joint that holds together one of the four clusters of lights has been repaired/soldered in a few places. Three of the four scrolled arms with downward facing lights and shades have been repaired/resoldered. When the chandelier was electrified, the stems supporting the bobeches and candlecups were drilled; three of those stems have been reinforced/repaired with solder; a fourth one has a crack in it. One of the four hanging finials is detached. Two small pieces of the brass mounts and a couple of screws from the finials are lacking.
