Condition Report

Overall the condition of the bronze is very good, with minor dirt and wear to the surface consistent with age. There is some dark residue to the horse's proper right shoulder. The reins and lance are slightly warped. There is a break to the reins below the male figure's hand, and the top of the lance is slightly loose but stable. There are a few minor nicks and scratches.

There are several small chips and abrasions to the edges of the base.
