4 9/16 x 2 15/16 in. (11.6 x 7.5cm)
/spanAn Estate, Pennsylvania.
Matted and framed; the (apparently) full sheet, with partial thread margins on some of the outer edges; sheet size: 4 9/16 x 2 15/16 inches. The sheet is partially affixed to the undermat with tape tabs verso. The outer edges of the sheet have pale brown toning, and the sheet itself appears to be toned. Areas of the sheet are paler in color vis-à-vis rest of print due to apparent tape tabs on verso coming through to the front of the sheet. There is a tiny darkened area near upper right corner of sheet – with minor associated surface split - and a spot of extraneous ink (we believe) at outer lower left edge of sheet.
