The colour in the catalogue illustration is fairly accurate.
This work is in very good condition. Close inspection reveals that a few of the steel studs along the right hand edge and the lower right hand corner are missing, with some associated tiny holes and fraying, as visible in the catalogue illustration. Further close inspection reveals some light handling marks, tension cracks and tiny spots of wear in intermittent places to all four edges. No restoration is apparent when examined under ultraviolet light. "In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above.
