Varnished wood. There is a minor wear to the most protruding elements. There are some cracks, notably to the front and back sides of the base and to the figures' back. There is a small nick to the back of the extreme right figure (approx. 16 cm from bottom) and another smaller nick to the lower part of his hood. There is a light build up of dust in the crevices. There are a few dots of discolouration to the front side of the figures, possibly related to varnish engrained with superficial dust. This work is in overall good condition.
