The photograph is quite accurate.
The micromosaic : several hairline cracks overall, some possibly filled. A temple facade restored. Some possible patches of restoration all throughout. Overall good impression.
Inevitable chips to the edges and corners of the marble top. Nice lapis lazuli inlaid decoration.
The giltwood with few scattered marks and scratches, the gilding possibly refreshed in places.
Good overall condition, ready to be displayed. "In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above.
