The gilding presents with several lighter circular discolorations (diameter from 1 to 1,5 cm), inherent to the natural evolution of some soldering joints. There are a few rare and tiny irregularities to the bronze, inherent to the making.
There are a few small traces of light oxidation, mostly concentrated to the bottom of the legs.
