Velvet cap is very faded with several dirt marks and what appear to be pen marks but no fabric tears, embroidery is in tact, lining is good with G Wall written in ink inside the lining, the photograph is in good condition but the cardboard surround is very torn and creased and foxed, damage to the surround doesn't touch the photograph, ink signature is clear
