The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate, although the red tends more towards a bright orange in the original. The illustration fails to convey the reflective surface of the plexi and the full three-dimensionality of the original.
This work is in very good condition. There is a tiny nick to the top left corner of the front of the metal box. There are three further tiny nicks to the front of the lower left corner.
