This work is in very good and sound condition overall. There is very light wear and handling along the extreme turning edges. There is evidence of scattered pinpoint losses along the edge, most noticeably in the lower right edge and again at the top edge, just right of center. The surface texture is inherent to the artist’s choice of medium and working method.
