The surface presents with some small scratches and scuffs. The bronze presents with some wear throughout, more significant along the edges, and with some instances of oxidation and of light vert-de-gris.
The glass elements are held by three thin metal stems that are weakened and presents with some traces of rust. As a consequence, the glass elements are slightly moving within the structure, without risks of falling. The edges of the glass elements present with a few minor chips. One glass element presents with a larger chip of approximately 2 x 0,5 cm, not visible from the front when the glass is set in the structure.
