A lovely object. The lacquer to the brass has discoloured. The brass is tarnished and there are old marks and scratches throughout with some localised areas of verdigris. Very slightly mis-shapen which does not detract. One fixing to base with soldered repair. Some paint splatters. The mattress and liner are beautifully made in superb condition and never used. The brass castors are a little sticky and mis-shapen. Charming and ready to use.
