71.12.6 Large parts of bronze have broken away from the sides of the curved section. The most important aspect to note is the deterioration in colour to blue, green, black and brown. Only in a couple of areas does the true colour of the bronze show through. Deposits under the handle where it joins the body. Small hole to one side of the curved section. 2011.98.0027.jpg
E.23.46 Dents to surface and deposits inside what was once probably hollow. Some initial signs of deterioration around the hole in the centre.
E.62.46 Due to deterioration the sharp edge has disappeared due to deposits. The tip is missing and the bronze has discolored to green in places. Two small holes near the nail have appeared perhaps due to deterioration as well.
E.65.10 Intact. Slight discolouration to bronze due to deterioration. Small surface scratches and deposits make surface appear slightly uneven although it feels smooth. 2007.01.0179.jpg
E.65.11 Intact. Small area of polished metal showing through on rectangular extension but not reflective. Major discolouration and deterioration to the surface of both sides. Small surface scratches. Does not sit flat so the object must be slightly bent. 2008.08.0044.jpg
E.65.12 Intact. Much chipping to edge and colour deterioration of surface but more round the edges than in the centre.
