Overall fine and stable condition. Refinished surface. Wear and residue commensurate with age and use. The drawer pulls are replaced. The proper front right openworked return was previously cracked and reglued. There are traces of lifting and splitting to the veneer on both sides of the hinged top and main board of the top, these are consistent with age and shrinkage to the boards. There are a couple of small 1" by 1/2" patches to the top just above the hinges.
