The copper is flat and stable. The image presents well under a clear varnish and retains good detail and vivid colors. Faint scuffs are along the top edge, possibly due to old framing. Inspection under UV reveals scattered areas of retouching on the clouds, figures, and background. The most prominent retouches are on the cloud to the left of the angel and on the upper right of the Virgin. Some retouching is faintly visible to the naked eye. The painting is stable and can be hung in its present condition. It is offered in a carved gilded frame.
