Good overall condition. The lacquered wood presents with scattered craquelures to the lacquer inherent to the aging process of the material, partially visible in the catalogue illustration. Some craquelures with tiny chips of lacquer, not visually distractive. One lower corner with a dent and some small chips of lacquer revealing the white layer unerneath. The opposite corner with a lighter dent and a few rare and tiny chips of lacquer.
