Overall in good condition and very good presentation; the solid mahogany with the expected minor scratches, nicks and dents consistent with age and use; the long panel to the front decorated with sphinxes and chimera and a bacchic mask - the bacchic mask showing green oxidation showing to hair, eyes, nose and mouth; the sphinx candelabra to the tops associated; the figural mounts of winged victory probably associated; the gilt-bronze urns to the top of each side probably early 19th century.
