In good "as found" condition. The case is solid and sturdy. The piece exhibits normal minor mars, abrasions and wear. All drawers and doors open and close freely. All locks are present. A functional key is present for the upper cabinet doors. There are two pieces of missing corner molding from the right central lower door. The molding at the base of the upper case is missing from one side; the missing molding is about 11" long. At that same rear bottom corner is a veneer loss, approx. 2-1/2" x 1-1/2"; part of that loss would be obscured by a replaced molding.
