Catalogue Note

The work is structurally sound and all elements are present. There are a few minor abrasions and nicks at the extreme overturn edges of the side panels. There are a few faint handling marks to the center panel predominately at the lower horizontal edge. There are a few points of paper residue at the extreme left vertical edge, which appear to be historic. Overall, the work appears to be in good condition.
