The etching is a work on paper, framed under glazing- not examined external to the frame. The print has full margins and a clearly defined platemark, is numbered below left and signed in pencil below right. The paper has some signs of ageing- including some browning of the paper and has some small, sparsly distributed spots of foxing in the upper margin and a couple in the very top edge of the platemark. The sheet does not show any obvious evidence for rips, tears or creasing. The frame is in good condition with solid joints.
