Good overall condition. The wool is soiled and presents with instances of matting and instances of discoloration, the latter mostly concentrated on the back and around the head. The patinated bronze presents with some rare and light instances of wear, slightly more visible on the protruding elements of the muzzle. The head presents with some minor traces of dried adhesive residue within the wool surrounding the face, inherent to the making, and with some of the wool very gently pulling away from the bronze face, consistent with age and gentle use. The legs present with some light humidity/oxidation stains consistent with age and use.
