Overall good condition.
The lacquer presents with some scattered light surface scratches and a few tiny scratches, instances of light wear mostly concentrated along the edes, a few light dents and a few minute surface chips of lacquer. The corner of one extension presents with a small chip revealing the wood underneath (on approximately 0,3 x 0,2 cm). A few minute areas of lacquer have been professionally re-finished and one extension has most likely been partially re-lacquered. The legs presents with some scattered scratches and oxidation.
All consistent with age and use.
