Condition Report
Extremely heavy, require at least three people to lift, we don't have scales of heavy enough duty to weigh them; to move upstairs would require a staircase of sufficient width and height to manoeuvre them safely and sufficient room
for several people to be able to bear the weight, we cannot any offer guarantees in this regard;
generally appears ok, casting imperfections and inconsistencies as to be expected with a piece of this scale, there is a crack presumably from manufacture 1.5cm long through one of the ribbons; pitting and some encrusted dirt as well
as further surface dirt and some marks; some rubbing to patination; base somewhat misshapen, not perfectly circular, but stable
