Condition:
As viewed out of the frame: non-conservation mounting tape used along the entire length of the top which is the only area to hold the watercolor in place; remnants of previous non-conservation mounting tape along the other sides; light yellowing occurring on the back of the watercolor because of the acid filled loose mount; overall rippling of the paper because it is a watercolor (could have have some handling creases but we cannot be sure because of the rippling). rf, 12-11-2018 Has some loss on frame.
