The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate,
This work is in very good condition. There is fine cracking surrounding the base of each wooden element and a number of fine splits to the protruding elements. There are a number of light media accretions in places throughout and a very light unobtrusive dusting of red pigment in places. No restoration is apparent when examined under ultra-violet light.
