The card is secured to the mount with two tabs of adhesive tape in the upper corners. There is some very slight rounding to the extreme corners. There are Artist's pinholes in the centre of the upper, lower and right edges; these do not extend all the way through the card. There is staining to all four edges of the card from a previous mount, not visible in the current presentation. There is some very light staining and studio matter to the sheet in places, only visible upon close inspection. Subject to the above the work appears to be in very good overall condition.
The work is window mounted and held behind glass in a simple wooden frame.
