To the unaided eye, this piece appears to be in very good conditon. There is a very subtle stabilized craquelure in some areas. Inspection under ultraviolet light reveals fairly extensive restoration work througout the piece. The piece has also been relined. The piece is framed in a semi-ornate, antiqued gold leaf frame. The frame is in good condition for its age, showing normal signs of wear.
