Condition and Details of Restoration:
This item is in original untouched condition and is structurally completely sound. The polish has been revived, by our own craftsmen, by hand in the traditional manner. There are some old marks underneath the polish (see detail photograph of the top in particular), which is attractively slightly faded in places. The silks have been replaced, prior to our ownership, but very well done, probably within the last 20 years. There are a few very minor marks to the material, all small.
