Condition: This item is completely solid in structure and form, an aged patina (colouration) and weathering has taken place across the surface as you would expect from an items age and material, crackling across all the surface gives this item a lovely decorative look.

These repairs have been done respectfully many years ago and we feel don’t deter from the objects decorative overall appeal.
