Object Condition

Good. No holes. No stains other than slight uniform age darkening of the ground. No stitch losses. Colours are all good and strong with no noticeable fading. No colour run. Stretching is slightly uneven. Frame showing some wear, but is structurally sound and in our opinion could be hung ‘as is’.
