The work is in good condition, there is light surface dirt. There are a few areas of abrasion on the patina, Napoleon's coat on his right side and two areas on the back of the base. There is a small hole in Napoleon's hat probably from the casting- seems to be deliberate. Napoleon is missing one spur on his left foot and the tip of his pinkie finger on his left hand.
