There are a few small dots of inpaint in the background underneath the old varnish. The surface is fine, and will benefit from a cleaning. There is a small scratch between the brown pear and second grape (from the bottom). Two other tiny chips: one just above the “J” in the signature and a small chip at right frame edge. Each of these are visible in the photographs. The corners slightly chipped but under the rabbet of the frame so it does not impair the image.
