Condition Report

Overall in very good condition. The vitrine has been sensitively refinished at some point in the history of the piece consistent with the integrity of the original design. The wood surfaces present with surface undulation concentrated to the burled wood veneer of the shelves, consistent with age and gentle use. The etched glass surfaces with minor surface scratches and very minor nicks to the surface, consistent with age and gentle use. Clear glass surfaces present with faint and minor surface scratches, consistent with age and gentle use. The velvet upholstery in the interior of vitrine with one ring mark and slight crushing to velvet surfaces, consistent with age and gentle use. A superbly worked cabinet with ruby red etched glass.
