The hood had a support repaired with rivets replaced and is tight and sturdy and original (see images). The lamp has several coats of paint which has protected the metal over the years.
There is no denting except for some minor edge denting to the visors all of which are present and original and no rust to speak of. The interior paint looks very nice and still has a gloss to it (see images). I placed a small bulb in the interior so you can see the condition of the red lens that has a hairline crack which stops halfway down and is secured from further damage by the inner rings (see images).
All the lenses are clean with lots of clarity. There is a company plaque in place (see image) and the original heavy brass latch and hinge are as well with a new hinge pin installed as the old was worn out. There is an exterior adjustment screw for the burner in place as well. The piece measures 12 3/3" tall not counting the bail handle and 9 3/4" wide.
