There is a crack running from the bottom edge up through the leg of the table which is visible to the naked eye. There are areas of paint loss particularly along the bottom edge to the left of the signature. There are also a few other worn areas. The frame may have been resoldered and is slightly dented, mainly needs a clean and tidy up.
No other obvious visibe damage, just wear.
Some information has been sellotaped to the back of the picture. 'Bought 12/07/06 and cleaned. Madame Roland 948. Signed bottom right, Blanc'
