Fair overall condition, consistent with the history of this piece.
The moleskine panels present with some scattered surface scratches. One panel presents with a triangular dent with partial tears. There are a few small tears along the edges of the panels (caused by the nails used to fix the moleskine panels to the teak structure).
The teak has been covered with a thick finish at a later date and presents with multiple dents and chips scattered. There are multiple instances of previous restorations to the wood. The teak elements present with seam separations, some of them have been previously infilled and some of these infills present with losses.
