This work is in good overall condition as viewed. There are some inconsistencies to the weave of the silk due to the age of the work. Some faint fox marks are visible upon close inspection. Upon close inspection, there is evidence of restoration visible on the hat and forehead of the taller girl and some restoration to the areas of abrasion at the bottom quadrants. Examination under ultraviolet light reveals areas of restoration at the hat of the taller girl, some small spots of restoration in the background, and at minor areas of abrasion in the bottom quadrants.

Framed: 77 by 57 cm
