A 5 cm. section of the upper balustrade has been broken and reaffixed (with traces of an old glue), and a small 1.5 cm section of the reticulated apron underneath has chipped off. Another small section of the balustrade has been detached and reglued, but otherwise the stand is in quite good condition. The actual colour is less orange and slightly more brown compared to the catalogue photo.
