Very good to excellent condition throughout, no damage to the painting and the frame is superb, as well. Large wafer, wonderful artistry. I did not open this one's backing. There might be more info within, but as fragile as the wafer might be, we'll leave further exploration to his next owner. The female shown with him in final images will be offered for sale separately, same artist and notations on that one.
