This work is in very good and sound condition overall. The colors are bright and retain their original chromatic brilliance. There is a light layer of dust visible on the base. Upon close inspection, there are scattered areas of flaking, paint loss and chips to the branches, leaves, and trunk of the tree. Also noticeable upon close inspection, there are stable cracks at the juncture where the branches extend from the trunk and where the bottom of the trunk meets the base, resulting from the flexibility of the materials used.
