Condition Report

Highly decorative panel. Basically a late 17th century table top which has been framed in a simulated red tortoiseshell and pewter border. The top bears the traces of the time with horizontal cracks which have been restored. Nevertheless the cracks are expected on such panel, they are still visible when close eye and it gives to the all piece an attractive patina. The marquetry with usual cracks and scratches. The ebony background with patched and spotted replacements, particularly to the upper right angle. Some expected replacements overall (border of the table which supports the marquetry the floral vase). Light veneer lifting in places. Some wax stains. The panel is protected by a glass top.

The base modern in good condition.

Attractive piece to be used as an unexpected manner (low table or even as a wall panel).
