**In "as found" condition. Scattered losses to the gesso and some flaking to the gilding. There are a few chipped losses to the lower corners of the frame which have been touched up with gold paint. Light wear to the gilding from rubbing (mostly along the inner edge of the frame). There are a few small holes around the frame presumably from previous mounting to a wall. The mirror plate is fine.
