The piece shows wear throughout. The item is toned and has stains throughout as shown in the listing image. Light losses along the extreme edges. In the lower left margin in the center image, there is a 1/2in tear. In the upper left quadrant, the silk is not firmly attached to the board. The verso could not be inspected due to the nature of how the artwork is framed. The board affixed to the silk fabric has heavy toning, skimming, and losses along the margins; there are two lines of old framer's tape loosely attached, and along the margins, there are old adhesive accretions.
