The panel is cradled, flat and stable. The paint surface is rather dirty and the varnish discoloured. The gilt of the Virgin’s mandorla has worn with age. There are discoloured retouchings along a vertical, repaired crack which runs the height of the panel, approx. 6 cm. from the left margin, as well as in the upper section of the sky. Inspection under ultraviolet confirms these, as well as further retouchings throughout Jesse’s bed, a 1 x 1 cm. spot in the figure along the upper left margin, and further small spots scattered throughout. In overall moderate condition. Offered in a plain wooden frame with losses.
