The fruitwood marquetry with very minor hairline crackling consistent with age and gentle use. The upper tier with an area of adhesive residue measuring approximately 1 inch in diameter and can be cleaned at the client’s discretion. A highly sculptural example in very good condition, displaying many of the hallmarks of the designer.
