The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate, although the illustration fails to fully convey the glossy surface and texture of the glazed ceramic beneath the crochet.
This work is in very good condition. Extremely close inspection reveals a small number of loose or broken threads in the crochet, as well as some tiny specks of adhesive residue, all of which are in keeping with the artist's working process.
