Condition. Excellent patina. One finger crack, another crack in left arm and possibly restored foot toes (not sure on this point, just small color variation on two toes). Ivory is strong and these small damages are very common for these rare and fragile ivory pieces.... most often they are just not detailed at auctions catalogs descriptions...
