Signed with a butterfly on the awning at right.
The composition is complete; the saleswoman lacks facial features; there are traces of figures in the open space to left of centre.
Fine diagonal shading is added to the shadows under the awning at upper right; short diagonal drypoint lines are added between two smaller figures beside the table at left; traces of figures in the open space are worn or reduced.
Strong diagonal lines are added above and to each side of the saleswoman and the circular lamp; strong diagonal shading is extended in the background, under the awning at upper right.
Additional diagonal drypoint shading is added to the background, between the two children at left and to left of the saleswoman's head.
Facial features are added on the saleswoman in the centre; some of the background shading under the awning is partially reduced and replaced with new shading and cross-hatching: there are long diagonal lines at left and close cross-hatching around the central saleswoman and under the awning; a cluster of short lines is added between the two groups of children at right.
