CONDITION: Piece is vintage, and has been kept matted and framed under glass. Piece is in good condition, colors are still vibrant, and the detail is exquisite, with no tears or rips. Underside of glass has some stray brown specks, mainly at the lower border area. Handwritten title and artist's signed name are legible. Paper has yellowed with age to a tan color. Paper appears to be good quality, and artwork is still colorful and distinct. Wood frame is likely the original, and is still in good condition, with a minor split in the wood in the upper left corner of the frame. A new piece of clear glass will need to be inserted into the frame. As noted above, item ships WITHOUT FRAME GLASS. Wooden frame back nails will be removed to enable removal of the artwork and glass.
NOTE: Listing photos were taken in natural light with piece still under glass, which created some reflections and shadows.
