This has a three way switch to light up the top or bottom pairs or all four globes. The globes are excellent condition, no damage, just a little dusty. The tension rod section is missing the guts, so there is NO tension, the pole is 81 tall with no tension. You could simply stack books under it to get it to the correct height for your application.
The gold section looks like an old repaint and there is one acorn nut missing where the wood connects to metal(photo10). I did not try to clean or polish anything, you are getting it exactly as I found it.
The light does break down to sections as shown in some of the photos. The light is in working order but as with any old lamp it is always recommended to have it checked out by a qualified electrician before using it.
