It has lived in a smoke-free environment. The canvas has been sewn all around the edges to prevent unraveling.
There is a hole in the top left-hand corner, possibly from when it had originally been displayed in the shop. It had been folded in a couple of places when it was sent to me, but it will be perfectly fine once it's been placed on a stretcher frame. Even folded in half, the canvas is too large to fit into the largest padded envelope, so it will be rolled and sent in a long mailing box.
