Additional Notes & Condition Report

Sheet cut in an irregular shape, polygonal at the top and oval at the bottom, then glued along the edge to spandrels to form a combined rectangular sheet , which in turn has been glued down to gray card. The glue to the gray card has loosened in the lower right quadrant, so that the (combined) sheet is lifting from it in that area. Some blurring, as from water damage; and some creasing.
