Overall the condition of the enamel is very good, with minor dirt and wear to the surface consistent with age. There are a few minor losses to the enamel around the edges. There is minor warping to the plaque, consistent with the material. There is very minor stable splitting to the enamel, notably at the top left corner. Some of the gilding has ghosted, including to the inscriptions and notably to the Saint's halo. The gilding on the sleeves of two of the kneeling figures may have been retouched. There is some wear to the green in the coat of arms. The plaque has been detached from the velvet covered wood frame, and there is some residue from the frame at the sides, particularly on the right hand side. The plaque can be re-inserted into the frame using glue to reattach the front section.
There is general wear to the frame, including fraying to the fabric. The front of the frame, which is glued on, has been partially detached.
