Full Condition Report: The crown piece (top yellow, original paint color, not stripped) is no longer attached. It was not carved as one piece with the main part. Three of the 4 side floral pieces are attached, not the top right (also yellow). They were carved separately and attached with nails. The top yellow piece is broken in two but fits together as a clean break. The middle of the two floral pieces on the left is broken off. I do not have these broken pieces. The good thing is that the two like pieces on the right are complete, so they could be used as templates, as a mirror image, to be replaced. There is a small chunk missing on the larger scroll on the right side of the painting. There are a few separation cracks in the frame around the painting. And, of course, part of the painting is missing. This was the first RB stripped and they didn’t realize that the original paintings were under the mirrors. — the chemicals seeped under the mirror and destroyed most of the painting.
