Very good overall condition. The ebonised wood presents with some surface scratches, light scuffs and a few chips. There are some areas of light wear to the ebonised finish with a few scuffs revealing the original colour of the wood and a few tiny losses of finish, not visually distracting. The bottom edge of the legs presents with some light wear/humidity traces. A few paint stains. All consistent with age and use.
