Physical description

Abstract in three sections, with large areas of regular lead squares. The centre and left hand sections are of opal striated glass covered by a grid of lines with slightly thicker crosses at the intersteces. The right hand section is of dark green glass covered by a gird of lines which break or have short crossing lines at random intervals. There are two red framing borders between the centre and right hand section and running round the outside of the panel. The centre and left hand sections appear to be joined with no dividing line. The divisions between the sections appear to be aluminium.
