Dirty varnish; thin strips of wood nailed along the edges. Very slight and minor warp to the panel. No apparent restoration aside from the cradled panel. Difficult to detect restoration under UV light, however, there is an area of darker pigment around the moon in the upper right corner which fluoresces slightly. Tiny nailholes along the edges.
