Very good condition overall with very minor scratches to the surface and a few minor chips to the edges, consistent with age and handling. Two very fine vertical hairline cracks visible to the surface to the drapery on either side of her body. As can be seen on the photograph, the matras has been carved in two pieces, which has been added to the end. One old horizontal repaired break to this part of the matras. Very decorative and attractive piece. "In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above.
