Overall excellent condition. Previously this work has been stored away since 1972. The surface of the painted cork appears to have slightly yellowed over time. Wear to the paint at the corners. With some scratches to cork surface, but otherwise in very good condition. The top surface of the shelf with some minor scratches that appear the result of placing the magazine stand in place. The magazine stand with some minor rubbing to the staining at the edges and some small edge nicks and chips. A professional conservator restored a three-inch loss to the staining on the front surface of the stand. The placement of the magazine stand is not fixed and therefore can be varied along the depth of the console. An extremely rare model.
