Condition Report

Slight lifts and cracks to the veneers on the top, a vertical crack running through the door on the left hand side, also some inked decoration to the walnut and some filler around the escutcheon, at the moment the action where the door should clip tight is not functioning properly so the fall front is dropping down, in the base drawer there are two metal spring clips at the back which aren't quite locating correctly as they should and the base drawer is rather Heath Robinson in its construction and has certainly been adapted, also a split to the side panels and back.
