To the unaided eye, this piece appears to be in good condition. Inspection under ultraviolet light reveals small areas of potential restoration throughout. The largest being located 9 inches from the upper edge of the piece and 11 inches from the right edge and measuring approximately 3/4 of an inch by 3/4 of an inch in size. There is a stretcher bar impression along the upper edge of the piece which has resulted in a very light craquelure in that area. The piece is framed in an ornate dark antiqued gold frame with a linen liner. The frame is in good condition for its age with light abrasions and chipping throughout, as well as light separation in the corners.
