Fair condition. Image is a bit washed out (maybe had an attempted cleaning, not sure) and has some mild loss on the boy’s bottom left. Mat and preserver show mild patina , and moderate bending on the preserver. Case is in Good shape, moderate degradation on the exterior accompanied by dust with some mild fleabite chips along the edges. Hinges are a bit loose but holding, clasp is functional. label intact.
