The card appears to be sound. There is some slight rounding to the extreme corners. There is time staining to the sheet in line with the present mount. There is also some further staining to the extreme right edge in the upper half, due to contact with a strip of adhesive tape on the mount. There is some slight staining to the extreme edges, notably one small spot of staining at the centre of the lower edge. There are some further tiny flecks of staining elsewhere to the sheet. There is some studio matter apparent in places, and some very light surface dirt. This excepting the work appears to be in good overall condition.
The work is window mounted and held behind glass in an aluminium coated frame.
