This work is in very good condition overall. There is evidence of light wear and handling visible along the edges and corners, including extremely minor losses at the corners. There is hairline cracking at the pull margins. Under close inspection and under raking light, there are clear surface accretions scattered throughout. There is evidence of a 1 inch area of hairline cracking in the bottom of the red painted nail on the left side as well as a minor pinpoint loss to the bottom of the center black nail. Under Ultraviolet light inspection, the aforementioned scattered spot accretions fluoresce brightly but are not the result of restoration. Framed.
