The illustration of the catalogue is accirate. Good overall condition despite the inevitable minor dents and scratches due to age and use. All constructions are firm and sound. The velvet upholstery is stained. Some minor restorations to the marquetry. There are some traces of old and inactive woodworm all over. Two legs, two feet and a stretcher have been restored. Some marquetry is missing along the seat due to the use. A lateral moulding of a seat is slightly cracked and could be easily restored. Very nice model with a nice warm patina.
