The burners are marked "Hugo Schneider Leipzig" Condition: one of the shades has a chip (size of thumbnail) and crack as shown in one of the pictures. The chimneys are new. The shade decorations match the base decorations; however one of the shades has a different decoration compared to the base, so it must have been replaced at the shop where it was purchased.
