Condition

There is heavy wear throughout the piece with several scattered areas with loss to polychrome and wood- the most noticeable loss is to the top of the forehead and to where the neck meets the chin. Although the head is one piece without any detached components, there is a crack that starts from the top of the head and leads to the back of the neck. There is a sticker accretion to the back of the neck. There is a green felt adhered to the underside as shown in the lot listing. Please contact us for a detailed condition report. Please note that the lack of a condition statement does not imply perfect condition. Email condition@revereauctions.com with any condition questions.
