Condition report

Some small holes to the forehead and sides. One the side with the shorter binding there is a long crack, through the ear and continuing towards the crown of the head, approximately 22cm long. The opposing side looks to have a filled fine crack. Both visible on online images. A fine 4cm crack issuing from the side of one mouth. A small chip to one head of the figural Janus surmount. All damage appears to be old, with no fresh looking flaws. Most faults available to view on online images.
