It is in good original condition and has retained much of its beautiful painted and gilded decoration and is the first example I've seen in green. It has been well used over the years and therefore has picked up some signs of age and use. There are areas of wear, paint loss and some fading. There are some cracks running through the papier mache, a small chip on the base and some general small scuffs here and there but nothing detrimental and it displays beautifully. There are no major damages and the top rotates well on its base.
