This work is in overall very good condition. Executed on cream wove paper which has been laid down on card. The sheet us unevenly time struck but the colors present nicely and are well preserved. There is a flattened crease along the lower right corner. There is some staining to the extreme edges of the sheet which may be the result of an acidic mounting.
