Condition Report: Overall in good, original condition. Showing wear consistent with its age and its original functionality as an invitation.
Front of invitation:
The colors are slightly attenuated, more so in the yellows. Soft rubbing present variously, no attendant ink loss. This is mostly visible under raking light, is not particularly obtrusive and is consistent with the functionality of this piece as an invitation. With a few small areas of soft surface soiling, for example in her forehead and right cheek as well as in the pink at lower right. Some intermittent ink loss along the spine, consistent with the fold and the invitation being opened and closed over the years.
Interior:
The paper slightly toned. Various dark pink/light red dots of staining in the bottom of the left hand side, possibly stray ink. An approx. 1 1/4 in. hard diagonal crease just right of center at the top edge of the righthand side. An attendant softer horizontal crease, approx. 2 1/2 inches in this same area and several other small soft handling creases. A small faint smudge/fingerprint in the uninked area at upper center left.
Verso:
With an approx 3/4 x 2 1/2 inch area at the upper center where remnants of previous tape are evident. Some minor lifting of the paper fibers in this area as well.
