Condition overview; in good condition, relative to its age, it is a very solid, sturdy, beautifully crafted piece.  All of the doors work well as do the drawers.  There are no cracks in the mirror or glass.  As expected on a used piece of this vintage, it displays general wear, knock (two minor on the right-hand side drawer edge) and surface marks.

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.
