Condition Report

Both of the figure's arms are lost, and there are losses to the feet. Otherwise the condition is good, with minor dirt and wear to the surface consistent with age. There are a few chips and abrasions at the high points, and notably to the top of the head. There are some pen(?) marks to the proper right side of the head. There is a small hole to the underside for mounting.

The modern stand is in very good condition.
