Condition
Minor surface wear to exterior of cabinet, with a cluster of discolored areas to right side of top, all in keeping with use over time. Lower back left edge shows a band of loss to veneer, .5" wide and 10.5" in length. Opposing corner shows a small, two inch loss to veneer. Feet exhibit losses to finish, likely caused by contact with water at some point. Overall very good vintage condition.
