Condition Report

Overall in good condition. The coffee table presents with scratches throughout, concentrated to the tabletop and consistent with use and the sensitive nature of the material. Two sides of the tabletop with small surface abrasions, each measuring approximately 1/4 inch. The resin surface on the circumference of the side edges of the tabletop with light surface residue, not visually distracting and consistent with age and use.
