It has not been altered in any way. There are no chips or marks anywhere on the lamp. The shade is not marked or worn anywhere. It is in perfect working condition and ready for a new home. Thank you for your consideration and for shopping on my page.This lamp must be packaged properly in order to reach you safely. With that being said, the size of the box and the packing material inside will increase the weight of the package.
