Condition & Details of Restoration:
This item is in original structural condition with no splits. The polish has been refinished, by our own craftsmen, by hand in the traditional manner. There are some minor old marks under the polish, including four old screw holes (now filled) to the centre of the top, most likely where a handle or some such had been added at some point. These are quite small and can be seen it the top detail photograph.
