The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate, although the paper tone tends more towards ivory and the oranges tend more towards deep coral in the original.
This work is in very good condition. The sheet is hinged to a silk-lined backing mount in several places on the reverse. The left and right edges are slightly undulating. There are two tiny tears to the right of the top extreme edge, and a few tiny nicks and spots of paper skinning to the left side of the top extreme edge, to the left and right sides of the lower extreme edge and towards the lower left corner on the left extreme edge.
