The colour in the catalogue illustration is fairly accurate.
This work is in very good condition. Extremely close inspection reveals some light rubbing and handling marks to all four extreme edges and two tiny specks of loss; one to the upper centre of the extreme right hand edge, and one to the upper centre of the extreme left hand edge. No restoration is apparent when examined under ultra violet light. "In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above.
