Overall in very good condition. The bronze surfaces throughout with scattered minor surface scratches, abrasions, wear, and minor traces of oxidation and surface soiling consistent with age and gentle handling. The horizontal green frame with wear to the patina throughout, resulting in a more golden tone to the bronze. The glass of the red frame is possibly replaced.
