Two of the feet are slightly bent, with one sitting about 1/8" above the table surface, and one showing a slight, structurally insignificant crack on the underside. Some shrinkage cracks on the insulators, which are later (but not new) replacements. Marked (twice on the underside) "Whartenby". A handsome piece.
