The colour in the catalogue illustration is fairly accurate.
This work is in very condition. A superficial layer of dust is adhered to the surface. Very close inspection reveals some minute rub marks on all four edges and a faint rub mark towards the lower left hand corner tip. Further very close inspection reveals two tiny specks of losses towards the upper left hand corner tip and one to the right hand vertical edge. No restoration is apparent when examined under ultraviolet light.
