This work is in very good condition. No distinctive signs of craquelure to the impasto. A thin layer of dust can be noticed upon closer inspection to the white areas of the flower pot. Some very faint scuff marks in some areas of the white background. The overall surface of the painting could benefit from a light clean. No signs of restoration under UV light.
The colours in the catalogue illustration are accurate with the overall tonality of the original work being less yellow and more vivid.
