This work is in very good condition overall. There is evidence of light wear and handling visible along the edges. Upon very close inspection, there are two brown pinpoint accretions along the top edge, and an area in the lower left corner which has discolored slightly. Under Ultraviolet light inspection, the aforementioned area fluoresces brightly, but does appear to be the result of restoration. Framed.


Framed dimensions: 10 ⅞ by 9 in. (27.76 by 22.9 cm.)
