Old very minor marks and chips and restoration to the lacquer decoration which is in generally good order, with some minor retouching. The mounts have lost their gilding and there is a crack in the left handle of one of the drawers and resoldering to the right handle on the same drawer. Evidence of old very minor worm which appears no longer active. There are some vertical hairline construction cracks and a horizontal one also to the left side where there has been some shrinkage, but this does not detract from the piece. There have been some internal restorations with some later pieces of wood to ease the running of the drawers and strengthen the sides. In overall good conserved condition.
