The waves have been finished in a green patinated bronze colour, whilst the seagull has a cold painted natural finish with delicate gilding to the feather tips. The base of the waves has been signed in the cast M LEDUCQ. There is some rubbing and loss to the original paintwork on the wave commensurate with age, there is also a fracture on the wave, but appears to be a fault in manufacture, it is stable and secure. There is a blemish on the marble, this is a result of being in storage for a number of years, I have not attempted polishing it out.
