In very good restored condition.
In good "as found" condition.
The piece exhibits normal wear, mars, abrasions, shrinkage and indications of age and use. The finish is
thin on the top, with some light stains and areas of lost finish.
There is a shrinkage separation in the top, about 4" long, as well as some other tight shrinkage cracks. It
is possible there is a splice patch to the upper 1/4" board on the top. The quarter round moldings in the
perimeter of the underside of the top appear to be later additions.
The lock and plate are present. No key is present. The interior contains two mortised-in fore-aft dividers,
one of which is split but securely affixed.
The legs and case are sturdy and solid. The case is of dovetailed construction. The underside of the case
retains a good dark patina.
