Condition overview; in poor to fair condition relative to its age, all the drawers work well.  As to be expected on a used piece of this vintage, it displays a number of general wear, knock and surface marks and there has been a repair made to the top left-hand corner of the top drawer.  In addition, the top has age-related changes to the ply.

Dimensions; 495mm wide x 690mm deep x 1280mm high.  Internal drawers; 385mm wide x 265mm high, 580mm deep.

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.
