Condition Report

Overall in very good condition. This piece presents with superb details and marquetry decorations in very well-preserved condition. The wooden surfaces present with light scratches and minor indentations concentrated to the flat surfaces, edges, and feet of the piece consistent with gentle use. The two side panels on each side present with some occasional and very minor areas of loss to the wood veneer, the largest measuring approximately 3/4 inches wide. The wooden surfaces, including the burled wood surfaces, also present with some occasional areas of sensitive restoration throughout to stabilize the wood, which are not visually distracting.


The lot is sold in the condition it is in at the time of sale. The condition report is provided to assist you with assessing the condition of the lot and is for guidance only. Any reference to condition in the condition report for the lot does not amount to a full description of condition. The images of the lot form part of the condition report for the lot provided by Sotheby's. Certain images of the lot provided online may not accurately reflect the actual condition of the lot. In particular, the online images may represent colours and shades which are different to the lot's actual colour and shades.

The condition report may not refer to all faults, restoration, alteration or adaptation because Sotheby's is not a professional conservator or restorer but rather the condition report is a statement of opinion genuinely held by Sotheby's. For that reason, Sotheby's condition report is not an alternative to taking your own professional advice regarding the condition of the lot.
