Overall in excellent condition. The patinated bronze presents with minor surface irregularities inherent to production as well as scattered faint scratches, abrasions and scuffing consistent with gentle use. The patinated bronze presents with occasional instances of oxidation, discoloration and rubbing to the patina consistent with gentle use and only visible upon close inspection. The seat of the bench presents with a few small traces of verdigris, not visually distracting. The patinated bronze with light surface soiling concentrated to the recessed contours of the design.
