Condition report: 

The blue john specimen is with a few flaws and a diagonally running around running down the body which has been slightly touched over with a composite material. See the additional photos, especially image 5 & 6. 

The gilt-metal base is probably a re-purposed gallery from another object with the finishing and gilding apparent to the underside. 

The finial mount and actual urn finial are associated. 

A few small chips to the black slate plinth. 

Discolouration and oxidisation to the gilding of the base and where it joins the slate plinth. Dirt and dust.
