The outer edge of bobeche may have bend or may be original shape, see the multiple photos and make your own. Determination, it is irregularly shaped and the flowers, leaves and scrolls are not all the same but does not seem damaged. Base has bolted on pierced cast iron weight and the remnants of old green paper cover. All of the items I sell are vintage, antique or collectible and will show some signs of use or wear. Please do not be expecting to receive a "new" condition item.Even excellent condition items will not look new and will show some signs of use. I will be happy to provide more information and/or photos. These charges will be extra and not included in your invoice nor collected by us. They are payable by you to your government. I will immediately leave same for you!
