The wood presents with a few small scratches and minute dents, mostly concentrated along the edges and consistent with age and gentle use, and some craquelures, inherent to the aging of the various wood species.
The proper right side of the lower shelf presents with a chip of 5 x 1 cm along the edge, not extremely visually distractive.
The upper shelf presents several circular marks and some areas of light discolouration.
The underside of the shelves are dry and presents with cracks and liftings.
