    Dimensions:
  • h. 55", dia. 33"
  • Condition:
  • **In very good condition. No sign of damage. One gas key is different from the rest. The brass pans surrounding the central hub have a few dents along their rim. Does not appear to be missing any decorative elements. Lightly polished with a very pleasing overall patina. Now wired. The wiring runs along the gas pipes on the arms, so the gas turn-on valves have not been tampered with. Wiring new.
