Condition

Both sides as well as all edges are painted. The front which s the only side with any glazing is in overall very good condition. The edges and the reverse, however, do show various signs of wear: small chips, paint losses and rubbing. Because of the crude character of the tile onto which the work is executed this wear is not visually distracting. This work is in overall very good condition.
