The envelope is in excellent shape except for a few small tears around the flap edge and on along the bottom edge. There is also mild discoloration due to age and pencil markings on the front.
Special care will be taken to keep this vintage pattern protected during the shipping process. The pattern is being kept in an archival sleeve and will be shipped in it. Cardboard is used to stabilize the pattern during shipping, as well as a padded envelope.
The pattern is being kept in a non smoking environment.
