The sheet is not laid down but is adhered to a backing card via two hinges along the top edge.
There are deckled edges to the sheet, with pin holes in all corners and elsewhere along the extreme edge, not visible in the present mount.
There is very slight discolouration to the extreme edges, not visible in the present mount, with further pencil markings, again not visible in the present mount. There are very faint possible pencil squaring marks to the sky, only visible upon very close inspection. These do not detract from the overall appearance of the work, which is otherwise in excellent condition.
Housed behind glass in a thin gold frame, set within a cream card mount behind glass.
