Condition & Details of Restoration:
This item is in excellent original structural condition. The polish has been revived by our own polishers, by hand in the traditional manner. There are some old marks underneath the polish, some knocks and scuffs to the plinth, and the ebonised decoration is attractively rubbed in places; we feel the photographs are representative.
