Very good vintage condition, normal light signs of wash wear but still plenty bright. Cleaned. 70+ years old.

I found a few hints of creamy toning in the ivory parts of the print, and a couple faint tan marks as shown. The print is busy and imperfections do not stand out --  I did not try to soak this one. The label is a little beat-up, but the rest of the piece presents wonderfully, just like the photos.
