The frame is in overall very good condition commensurate with age. The oak board and easel support are very good. Back-board is securely retained in position. The frame shows minor signs of age/use. The silver mount has been pierced (bottom right corner) when originally formed however this is not at all noticeable when displayed. Please see images as these form an important part of the description.
