Condition Report

Overall the condition of the coral is good with minor dirt and wear to the surface consistent with age. There are a number of very small holes and indentations (which may be integral to the material) which are dark (probably as they are filled with dirt); for example see some to the narrow part of the hoop. There may be a loss to the lower part of the face of one of the putti. A few very minor abrasions.
