41 1/2 x 60 x 36 1/4 in. (105.4 x 152.4 x 92.1 cm)

Overall in very good condition. The wooden surfaces appear to have been professionally refinished at some point in the history of the piece and present with scratches, abrasions, indentations and superficial losses to the wood throughout. The wood surface presents with areas of inpainting to the wood concentrated to the edges of the table which are not visually distracting. The base with some very minor and stable hairlines to the surface.

The painted metal on the overhead shade appears to retain its original white coating to the inside which presents with areas of loss throughout as well as accompanying oxidation and rust marks. The metal screws and bolts appear to be original with the exception of the metal switch is a later replacement.

The frosted glass panels appears to be a later replacement and presents with very minor scratches and edgewear.
