Condition report: This is an antique piece over 200 years old and as with all antique furniture there are signs of age and use. The table is in overall good condition and it is sold unrestored with a lovely patina and various signs of use like darker marks on the top – as per photographs, and signs of age like the wood shrinkage of the top that runs vertically. The wood shrinkage is superficial and gives this table character. The veneer of the edges of the base is slightly worn as if gentle feet rested on them in the course of time in line with the use of the table as a dining or writing surface. All items mentioned for accuracy and we recommend reviewing the photographs of this lovely item.
