Some minor dents and knocks to corners and edges but overall in good original condition, doors open to reveal two sliding doors and a central division, slight wear showing where the base drawer has rubbed against the carcass but overall good order.
The ebonising is a little worn from polishing and use with the reddish colour of the timber bleeding through in places. Back is not exactly decorative but is panelled as per the sides so it could free stand.
