The piece is heavily toned and shows wear throughout. Throughout the recto, there is a horizontally patterned marking as shown in the listing image, potentially original to the fabric. The margins are darkly discolored. In the corners, there is potential liquid damage. In the upper right corner, there are brown accretions as shown in the listing image. In the lower left quadrant, a light foxing has begun to form. Along the upper side of the board, the fabric has a few scattered areas of tears and brown accretions. The verso could not be inspected due to the nature of the fabric being affixed to the board. From the back, the board is heavily toned and shows uneven coloration; please see the listing image; heavy wear throughout. No visible sign of restoration under UV light.
