Overall in very good condition. The headboard presents with a superb free edge area at the center top enhanced with a sleek rosewood key. The wood’s natural hairlines are stable. The wooden surfaces present with light surface scratches and very light edge abrasions consistent with gentle use. The proper right side of the headboard with an area of filling to the wood measuring approximately 4 inches wide, which is possibly inherent to production and not visually distracting. The recessed areas with some very minor soiling. The feet with some discoloration and scuffing consistent with use. The daybed is offered together with two later platform settees in very good condition overall.
