This work is in very good and sound condition overall. The work presents a lightly aged appearance overall which is appropriate. The wood support and metal elements are all stable, secure and accounted for. The media layer is stable. A few minor losses and areas of oxidation are present on the metal element which are consistent with its age. Under raking light inspection: two faint glossy ¼ inch drip accretions become apparent in the upper left and bottom left quadrants and a few minor handling marks become apparent in the extreme upper left quadrant and at the extreme right edge.
