Good overall condition, consistent with age and external use. The bronze surface presents with oxidation throughout consistent with age and the natural evolution of the medium. The bronze with scattered vert-de-gris stains mostly concentrated to the feet, as pictured in the catalogue illustrations. The surface also presents with some light running to the patina, as well as lighter oxidation stains, some surface scratches and minor imperfections to the casting mostly inherent to the making.
