It was used a few times with candles and may have a little wax residue but mostly tea lights were set on top of the cup, which collected their own wax, and therefore it's really clean for a used candelabra. It is a little dusty from age but I'll leave the cleaning to you. Other than that it's quite clean and very "shiny".
It doesn't have excessive age, wear, tarnish or anything like that. The only blemish I saw was one dark line (you can see in one close up photo), on the plate below one cup. Not sure if that can be cleaned off or polished - I'm not sure if it's a scratch or just something rubbed on it. It may have minor wear, age, tiny scratches, etc... But I don't see any major issues.The felt on the base is in great shape as well. This was an adored family piece that was used only at holidays. This does look very "bright". I haven't touched or cleaned it, although the previous owner may have polished it. I will also be listing a couple of Baldwin lamps from the same estate.
