Hinge mounted in two places along the upper edge to a modern mount. There is an old horizontal crease across the centre of the sheet, most probably a hanging line formed during the creation of the paper. There are some old creases to the extremities of the sheet and minor stains in places. There are some small repaired holes to the lower half of the sheet, though these are only noticeable when inspected closely. The red chalk medium remains fresh throughout. Sold in a modern giltwood frame. In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above.
