Condition overview; in good condition, relative to its age, it is a beautifully hand-crafted piece. There are no chips or cracks in the marble or glass. As to be expected on a well-used piece of this vintage, it displays a number of general wear, knock and surface marks. Over the years there have been repairs made, including to the gallery and the veneer, however none detract from the aesthetics of the piece.

Please review the photos and the condition overview as they form part of the description. There may be variances in colour, as it can be difficult to capture exact colour at times. Also, it is impossible to mention / photograph every mark, therefore apart from general wear and tear marks, we endeavour to report and capture as many specific marks or damage, however we may inadvertently miss something. With this in mind; we encourage and highly recommend viewing of items.
