This outdoors scene appears to be partially solarized. As is visible in the catalogue illustration, there is a very thin border of tarnish along the scalloped edges of the mat. Also visible in the catalogue illustration are several tiny dark spots on the plate, including on in the upper sky area and one in the foreground.
An old seal, possibly original, appears to remain intact. The case is in generally very good condition. In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above. Since we are not professional conservators or restorers, we urge you to consult with a restorer or conservator of your choice who will be better able to provide a detailed, professional report. Prospective buyers should inspect each lot to satisfy themselves as to condition and must understand that any statement made by Sotheby's is merely a subjective qualified opinion. NOTWITHSTANDING THIS REPORT OR ANY DISCUSSIONS CONCERNING CONDITION OF A LOT, ALL LOTS ARE OFFERED AND SOLD "AS IS" IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE CONDITIONS OF SALE PRINTED IN THE CATALOGUE.
