The outside of the chest is quite faded with visible damages to the lacquer, especially on the top section where there is a long 43 by 4 cm area of damage across (showing on the illustration in the catalogue). The interior appears to be better preserved, with only a few expected dents and nicks to the drawers and along the edges (see photos). There are some expected age cracks, including a split to the back extending horizontally in the lower part of the panel and there are additional splits at the various joints of the cabinet. Some drawer knobs have been replaced. The left door is loose. The chest would greatly benefit from a professional restoration.
