Overall fine condition. Wear commensurate with age and use. Refinished surface. The side drawer runners have been replaced. Nails have been added to some of the dovetails in order to strengthen the joints. Losses to the front corners of the bottom board, which is not visible unless the bottom drawer is removed. The front feet have been reglued, possibly a result of the previously mentioned losses to the bottom board and shrinkage. There is a 3-inch by 1/2-inch patch to the lower molding of the case on the proper left side.
