The case is sturdy and functional.
There is a hole cut along one edge of the interior back, about 1" by 1-1/2". The interior is unpainted, and retains good discoloration and staining to its bottom. One of the return moldings at the bottom of the top is loose.
Both right doors and both drawers have previously been drilled for a pull. The holes are now filled.
There is a shrinkage separation on one lower door where two boards are laminated together. Both sides of the base exhibit similar vertical shrinkage separations now filled.
The surface has been worked at sometime in the past, probably cleaned and polished. The sides of the drawers and back of the case do not exhibit any of the usual indications of having seen chemical stripper. The edges of drawers, doors and perimeters of the panels retain dark, old color. The surface does exhibit some scattered scrubs and scrapes to the finish.
The patina on the back is consistent from top to bottom. The patina on the back of one cornice molding matches that of the back. The other appears to have been slightly scrubbed, or replaced a very long time ago. That molding retains scrapes to the top edge, paint rubs and indications of age.
No key present.
Depth of upper case: 13"
