Overall the condition of the urn is good with dirt and wear to the surface consistent with age. There are two reattached sections to the molded stem. There are various losses to the molded stem and old restorations (which are slightly eroded). The edges of the molded stem are slightly uneven. The moulded stem has been inserted into a stone square base (probably for stability). There are small chips and abrasions to the edges throughout, particularly the handles. The stone is naturally mottled throughout. There is a circular veined area (or possible reattachment) to the belly of the urn.
