A light stain is evident on the vase. A mat burn line is faintly visible along the right side of the print, particularly at the bottom right corner. There is tape residue and two archival hinges on the back at the top. This print was purchased directly from Paul Jacoulet in Karuizawa, Japan by the owner's mother.
