Additional Notes & Condition Report

appears to be in generally good, undamaged condition; the two blossoms in the figure's hair have a blackened coloration, suggesting perhaps they may have originally been silvered and are now tarnished; uniform dulled appearance to the gilt patina; some scattered small spot stains in some of the crevices, which appear to be dirt residue
