Very good overall condition.

This spectacular Grande Carpe presents an exceptional patina when seen in person.

There are a few oxidation stains on the top of the head, one more visible near the right eye, of approximately 1 cm but not visually distracting. The tail presents with very small losses of bronze inherent to the making, together with light oxidation marks as well on the front fin.

The Grande Carpe has been professionally cleaned.
