Condition report

Overal the piece is in good condition for its age. There are three areas around the body of minor crumbling/abrasion to the stone (probably limestone). See three additional photographs. The top rim and interiors of the piece are in good clean condition and the figures around the body, for the most part, are still reasonably crisp.
