Partially laid down on the remains of an old album page. There is a horizontal old crease/repaired tear that runs across the width of the sheet, roughly 2cm from the upper edge. There are two old pin prick holes to the upper left and right corners and a small brown stain to the lower right edge. The red chalk remains predominantly fresh throughout and the blue paper retains much of its original blue color. Sold in a modern giltwood frame.
