The whole document measures about 36 x 30" and is a little soiled/toned generally but may be improved by gentle cleaning to make a superb document for framing. The original large wax seal is still in its tin box measuring about 4" across but unfortunately the seal itself has broken into many pieces and is no longer attached to this impressive document. Please note this item weighs about 450gr should it be posted overseas it will be expensive.
