Overall excellent original condition. The bronze surfaces with some light scratches, minor rubbing to the high points and areas of oxidation consistent with age and gentle handling. A few of the stems are slightly misaligned, as is common for these forms over time. A highly sculptural and textured bush form that presents exceptionally well overall.
