This work is in very good and sound condition overall. There is evidence of handling and wear to the edges, including a few scattered, minute and unobtrusive losses to the white pigment and shallow losses to the wood support. Under close inspection and raking light, a few scattered superficial scratches are visible to the glass elements. As expected with a work of this construction, the piece is slightly dusty overall.

Since we are not professional conservators or restorers, we urge you to consult with a restorer or conservator of your choice who will be better able to provide a detailed, professional report. Prospective buyers should inspect each lot to satisfy themselves as to condition and must understand that any statement made by Sotheby's is merely a subjective qualified opinion.
