Condition and Details of Restoration:
This item is in original structural condition and is completely sound. The polish has been revived and the inset leather scriber replaced, by our own craftsmen, by hand in the traditional manner. As ever with furniture of this age there are some old marks underneath the polish, but in this instance all extremely minor; in our opinion, the photographs are representative.
