There is adhesive residue surrounding some of the mounted jewel elements, inherent to the artist's working method. There is minor soiling and light dust, most notably at the crevices, visible upon close inspection inherent to age and use. The is minor general wear with associated faint scratches and pinpoint scattered losses to the pigment, visible under very close inspection.
