Description: with a rectangular top above three doors with raised rectangular panels with everted corners centred by a bronze male bust handle opening to reveal two shelves on an inverted breakfront platform base; rebacked
In country house condition. The old top has slight warping, dents, marks, scratches and a horizontal construction crack running partially through the top. Evidence of old woodworm which appears to be no longer active. There are scattered age cracks and cracks generally, as visible from the catalogue photograph, and which would benefit from being filled. The edges of the doors appear to have been restored with a later piece of wood. The base is scuffed and, together with the front corner, has suffered from worm damage in the past, which has resulted in losses. There is some white staining to the front that can be cleaned off.
