Regular price £350

380mm tall (15")
864mm wide (34")

Sympathetically restored with some breaks professionally repaired. Original polish intact, which is displaying some degredation and peeling. Some light wear to the left wingtip and a small amount of wood loss to the back from around one of the break repairs, but does not detract from the front of the piece.
