This bronze has a good age of of early 20th/late 19th century and is in good solid condition, so there are signs of wear and odd scratches with. Some rubbing, marking, tarnising and even some old polish residue etc.It is quite bespoke in its original manufacture and finish and most probably a one off. There are some pinholes, flaws etc.. Mainly on the mascaron sides. Maybe have had an old repair or done at the time the piece was made.. Very stable, all said and noted but does not detract from this superb sphinx.
