Condition: (UV-checked)
- Important restorations throughout, including the reconstruction of an important part of the base and app. 1/6th of the body. The original body with multiple reglued and retouched breaks.  The bearded face original. The handle broken off and restuck, the breaks retouched. Two and a half portrait medallions remodelled. The exact extent of the repair hard to discern due to the nature of the restoration. Nevertheless an extremely rare example.
