Overall, the condition of the wood is good with dirt and wear to the surface consistent with age.

There is a further split to the bagpiping putto's proper right wrist, which is open but stable. There is some rubbing to the wood, and some losses to the varnish, in particular to the hat, the proper left arm and the cup of the drunk putto. The wood is carved in sections, two elements of te bagpipes are loose. There are some minor chips and scratches, including to the top edge of the cup and to the same putto's proper right big toe.
