The frame was painted long ago when it came from a Kansas estate and this was what was underneath. Best part of the set is the matching globe, cast ROCK ISLAND SYSTEM extended base style. Very light surface scratches that do not impede the quality of the glass and are very hard to see, the globe is a beauty. Hard to even find a flea bite; just about mint rims.
