Wear consistent with age and use. Glass dome and base are in very fine condition, no chips or cracks. Birds are all intact, decorative elements and fragile grasses seem to be as originally intended without significant losses. The bottom bird has seen better days but the majority of the birds are in amazing condition. But please inspect photos.
