The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate although the overall tonality is brighter and more vibrant in the original. The catalogue illustration also fails to convey the reflective nature of the mirror.
This work is in very good condition. Visible only upon extremely close inspection in raking light are a few extremely thin and shallow superficial scratches in places on the mirror. Close inspection reveals a few nicks to the extreme edges of some of the metal sheets with some associated minute specks of loss, some of which are visible in the catalogue illustration. No restoration is apparent when examined under ultraviolet light. "In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above.
