Dirty, uneven varnish; no apparent restoration, however, some pigments do fluoresce under UV light. This most likely due to areas not varnished. Wear with old tacking holes along the tacking edge, with some tearing in the corners (upper and lower left). There is a 4 x 5 1/4 inch area of hairline scratches in the upper right corner.
