This work is in good condition. There are few small spots of paint loss on centre right edges, bottom left edge, bottom centre, lower centre and bottom right corner. There is no restoration apparent when viewed under the UV light.
The catalogue illustration is very accurate; however there is more shine overall in the original work.
