Overall in very good condition. The bronze surfaces with some light scratches, minor rubbing to the high points and areas of oxidation consistent with age and gentle handling. A few of the stems are slightly misaligned, as is common for these forms over time. The bush sculpture presents with a variety of patina and oxidation hues from powdery teal to rich brown. The base presents with an intricate detail that mirrors roots. In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above.
