Condition Detail
Shows subtle signs of wear and age, specifically mild satin weave loss to the upper 5-6 inches of the front hip in the blue area of the weave, also at front right knee level in the orange palm leaf, very occasional mild picks and pulls to the satin elsewhere, the lower front right has two areas of tan liquid marks in three vertical streaks with a few speckles elsewhere, the largest is about 4 inches long and all are obscured by the busy patterning; overall quite wearable despite these issues
